Rovell selected Columbus' logo, which features a blue catfish swinging a baseball bat at a Georgia peach attached to a fishing hook, as a No. 2 seed in his bracket. The Catfish are paired against the seventh-seeded Kansas City T-Bones.

Round Two voting closes Wednesday at 9 a.m., so you'd better be quick to click.

Other teams on Columbus' side of the bracket include the Casper Ghosts, Lansing Lugnuts, North Arkansas Naturals, Augusta Green Jackets, River City Rascals and Aiken Foxhounds.

Rovell reported on his blog Tuesday morning that a previous bracket pairing between the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs and Lakewood BlueClaws drew 8,000 votes. The Iron Pigs advaned in the bracket by capturing 52 percent of the vote.
