Albuquerque NM's professional baseball team, the AAA affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers is known as the Albuquerque Isotopes. The Simpsons TV show played a role in the Albuquerque Isotopes’ name. Homer Simpson goes on a hunger strike to stop their team, the Springfield Isotopes, from moving to Albuquerque. A reader survey from the local paper, the Albuquerque Tribune, helped pick the name. To this day, statues of Marge and Homer Simpson can be seen at Isotopes Park, where the team plays.
