Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

The Texas one is the winner. I figured udosuk would get the American and National League one but that the Texas League might slow him down a bit.

It's funny, I thought the Bush one was the better answer.:)

Bush League looks like a more general and popular term than Texas League. However:
Wikipedia wrote:The League's name is well known due to its association with a particular aspect of the game. A bloop single that drops between the infielders and outfielders has been called a Texas Leaguer since the 1890s, despite no evidence that it originated in the Texas League, or was any more common there than elsewhere.

So I suppose a dedicated baseball fan might know that term better.

Of course, a Texas Ranger is much more American than a Bush Ranger, which is Australian as a matter of fact.

To round it up, bush tea is a South African tea, which is also called redbush or rooibos tea. Texas tea is originally another name for crude oil, but there is also a drink invented for that name.

On 2nd thought Texas is got to be the answer for an American audience.:D
