The Los Angeles Dodgers minor league affiliate, Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, adopted an inappropriate slang word as their new nickname.

On Thursday, the Quakes announced that they will go by the 'Chaquetas' to pay homage to the iconic jackets worn by Mariachis during a three-event Copa de la Diversion series.

Although the word 'chaqueta' translates to 'jacket' in English, it is also slang for masturbation.

While the higher-ups seemingly missed the word's secondary meaning, fans quickly called foul on the word's urban definition on social media.

As a result, the team removed their announcement. Shortly after, the team backpedaled and put the moniker through a vetting process again.
