    Rebranding the Braves?

    With the endless debate over the Indians use of Chief Wahoo, I feel it’s only a matter of time before the team also receives a name change. “Indians” is both an outdated and inaccurate term to describe Native American people. The Atlanta Braves are no strangers to controversy themselves. The leaked design for a cap bearing the “Screaming Indian” logo back in 2013 was met with such outcry that it was scrapped. There’s also the “tomahawk chop” fans have been enacting at Braves games for nearly three decades. This too has been deemed offensive by some. While the Braves haven’t endured as much scrutiny as Cleveland, I suspect they’re next once the Indians situation is resolved. I am curious where people stand on this issue. If you are in favor of an eventual rebrand, what sorts of alternate names and Atlanta-centric identities could the team explore? Is there a way to keep the Braves name and apply it to something other than a Native American-inspired identity? P.S. I don’t intend this to dissolve into another Wahoo debate, so please don’t allow that to happen. Thanks.

    OOTP Logos

    A bunch of my friends and I are in an online OOTP league. Thought I'd share a few of the logos my roommate and I have collaborated on for some of the teams in the league. Enjoy
  3. Back with a brand new series! One of my absolute favorite periods in baseball uniform history was the period immediately at the beginning of the double-knit era. Starting with the Pirates in 1970, Major League teams switched from flannels to brand new polyester double-ply technology. Team didn't quite know exactly what to do with the new fabric. The result was a series of gorgeous, modern, colorful but clean uniform styles like the '70s Red Sox, orange-centric shooting star Astros, Swingin' A's, and feathered Braves. Things got a little crazy in the late '70s and early '80s and conservative button downs reasserted their presence. But what if it hadn't gone that way? What if the pullover and sansabelt look had stuck? The uniforms would have been modernized (I doubt we'd see the '83 Sox in the current era) but maybe instead of harking back to the flannel era, maybe baseball goes back to the early double-knits. So this series is based on that alternative history. These are contemporary uniforms but designed with the idea that the pullover era never ended but just evolved along the same lines that uniforms took to this day. We start with the champs. I've used the same revised logos that I used for my original MLB series but adapted them into the early 70's pullover look (minus the blue sleeve caps). I've added white stripes to the stirrups to better match the cap. Powder blue and white dominate the roads and I'm throwing in a blue alt for fun. Enjoy!

    Kansas City Royals Circle Logo

    So this is my first post... I took the circle logo from the early 2000s and changed some colors, added some borders, and put the current crown on there also. Not much, but still something I thought was pretty cool. I would think that it's probably too complex to go anywhere except the arm of the uniform. If you think it would look cooler a different way just let me know. I might just make it that way!
  5. When you have something you wanna improve on, you have something you wanna improve on. In this case, the split scripts I'd used for a Blue Jays set in the Rivalry Series. I've thought about making a contemporary uniform with those scripts for a while, and now is as good a time as any. The two scripts are based on older uniforms worn by the Jays' predecessors, the baseball Maple Leafs, with the addition of the Blue Jays' trademark split. The jay head is on the sleeve of the whites instead of the front because frankly, with this script, the front would just be too cluttered that way. For the hell of it, I included an alternate T cap. The alt blue is, like its RL counterpart, a negative of the homes, though I almost went with a royal-to-navy faux gradient and navy pants. The road alt recolors the grays into powder blue, with a powder-front cap to go with it. And since this one wouldn't leave me alone, fauxback pullovers, 80s style with the current scripts. Posting is a virtue.
  6. This is my first time trying my hand at graphic design, and I wanted to see what others thought. I'm not an artist, and I don't have an incredibly deep understanding of graphic design- I assume what I drew has bad vectoring, but I couldn't tell you the first thing about what vectors are, or what adding the suffix 'ing' to the word vector actually means. So if this is offensively amateur, feel free to let me know and I'll scrub this post! Just wondering if this is anything.

    MLB by Nike (Marlins Up)

    Everybody knows the news that Under Armor will be taking over the MLB jerseys in 2019, but I had the idea to think of a world in which Nike was running the MLB. This is that world; vibrant, creative, and very unique. Some of these designs will be off the wall, while others will put a modern, yet classic twist on timeless jerseys. This is my first major project, and I fully intend to complete this to the very end, so constant C&C will be very helpful and appreciated. I have no particular order for which I will be unveiling these teams, basically whatever comes to mind for me, or if you'd like, you can request a team and I'll see about getting to it! First up we have the Miami Marlins. What I've done here is tried to create a blend of the old logo set and the new one. I boiled it down to just three colors, black, orange, and light blue. Occasionally I will use gray as an outline or accent color, but those are the main three. So without further ado, here is the first set of logos for MLB by Nike. Thanks for looking and C&C is greatly appreciated.

    Pro Baseball Clubs of America (Atlanta Added)

    Been a little over a year since I tried my hand at a fictional baseball league series. I went back to the drawing board and created some new teams, as well as perfected previous ones from when I did this before. I went a lot more in-depth with everything this time, and spent a lot more time on each franchise. This is the PBCA (Pro Baseball Clubs of America). The league so far has 20 teams, and I will post sporadically when I'm completely done with a team. 1. Kansas City Roasters 2. Charlotte Xpress 3. Colorado Bluegills 4. Las Vegas Lights 5. Washington Founders 6. Atlanta Hammers 7. Boston Chowdas 8. Seattle Spinners 9. San Diego Servicemen 10. Alaska Black Bears 11. New York Hitters 12. Detroit Crows 13. Atlantic City Skippers 14. Montreal Macareux 15. Anaheim Peppers 16. Virginia Vipers 17. Chicago Rhinos 18. Arizona Sun Cats 19. Madison Creamers 20. Cincinnati Stingers Red=Finished

    Milwaukee Brewers Concept

    Have not posted a concept as of yet and I thought I'd get into the game. Here's my take on the Milwaukee Brewers. I gave them the Blue Jays treatment. Updating their classic look by tweaking the font. I kept the current look drop shadow as I feel it has a 'beer label' kind of feel more-so than a standard outline. Used the BiG as the sleeve logo but gave them a simple 'M' as the hat logo. CC appreciated as this is my first attempt. If this goes over well enough I may do the rest of the league.

    Fantasy baseball promo poster

    My friends and I take our fantasy baseball league pretty seriously, so I made a promo poster for a marquee match-up quickly approaching. One of the teams and I live down the street from each other, hence the "Sidewalk Series." It is also our 3rd meeting this season, hence "3rd round." I'd love to hear some feedback on how I can improve this!
  13. I was just messing around with Photoshop and I created a fauxback uniform for Michigan State. I used only cream and green for the uniform. I don't really have a list of teams in mind so I am down to take requests.

    MLB World Series Concept Logo

    NCAA Tournament is winding down, MLB Opening Day a week away or less, and the release of MLB The Show 17 tonight, I thought it would be fun to show you a World Series Concept Logo I've been working on. World Series Logos from years past My Concept for the 2017 World Series: A navy and steel blue gradient diamond with a red interior outline and white bases and home plate. Four pennant flags (four because two didn't look like enough) I guess you could say the four stand for the following: 1 to represent the NL, 1 to represent the AL. 1 for the NL champion and 1 for the AL champion (but I think that's reaching a bit). The World Series in a "Championship Gold" and "Autumn Brown" gradients. Date in white above, and the MLB league logo at the bottom. Improvements: - Wondering if MLB league logo should be a bit smaller to center with home plate. - I had a baseball logo that I was going to put in the two pennant flags but didn't look right to me and wasn't sure where else to put it. - World Series seems like it's not truly centered, which according to my program I use it is, so maybe it's my eyes playing tricks on me. As usual, C&C appreciated. (The timer on MLB The Show 17 on my PS4 is moving so slow...)

    USBL--St. Paul Loons Posted (24/24)

    It's officially baseball season again, and Ive been working on my fictional baseball league for the past year or so since it sort of died a couple of years ago. I've come back with a lot better ideas and cut down the number of teams to pace myself better. If you followed that thread at all, you'll see its revival is under a new name: the United States Baseball League. You'll also notice that a lot of the teams are transferred over from that old league and it may seem like the histories should transfer over as well. These histories have no relation, everything's redone, so anything you remember from that thread, it doesn't apply. Also, none of today's actual leagues exist in this world, so keep that in mind. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The United States Baseball League was formed in 1930 when teams from Kansas City, Omaha, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Boston, and New York came together and created the first professional sports league in America. Christopher Husley was elected as the first league president, and the Kansas City Browns took the first title. Husley was also elected as a charter member to the USBL Hall of Fame in 1965. Today, the USBL has inflated to 20 franchises, with the most recent expansion in 1996 and the next round of 4 coming in 2016. The USBL prides itself in small-market clubs, which it believes sets itself apart from other professional leagues in the US. Each season, 8 teams reach the postseason--the four best teams from the American and National Divisions. The first two rounds are both best-of-five matchups and the Championship Series for the John S. Branson Cup is a best-of-seven series. The USBL just released a new logo for the 2016 season. The red and blue surrounding the player represent the National and American Divisions. Uniform wise, the USBL is a classy league. Each team has home whites and road greys and is limited to three alternate jerseys, although none are required to have alternates. In addition, all teams will receive Memorial Day sets, 4th of July sets, and various special jerseys that honor multiple racial backgrounds (Latin American, Japanese, French, etc.). Patches are to be used for team-related anniversaries (10, 25, 50, 100), league-wide anniversaries, similar to the USBL's 75th Anniversary celebration in 2005, catastrophes or other current events, or in honor of former team members. Some other minor notes: Pullovers and sansabelt pants never were a fashion in the 1970s, and thus will not be used for throwbacks. This may change, who knows. Also, batting practice jerseys were never used. The standard attire for BP is the team-issued t-shirt or normal jersey and, in some cases, an alternate BP hat. In the spring leagues, most teams choose to wear their standard homes and roads and forgo the alternates. You'll note this series includes field designs as well. All bullpens are required to be out of the field of play, which means a wall separating the playing surface from the bullpens. Oh, and the concept of a designated hitter was shot down in the early 50s and has never been challenged, so it looks like they'll never make their way into the USBL. Original League Logo: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Iowa Dusters | Portland Loggers | Seattle Captains | New Mexico Suns | New York Knights | California Grizzlies | Arizona Sidewinders | Indiana Tribe | Colorado Kings | Omaha Cyclones | Pittsburgh Flying Shearmen | San Francisco Fire | Jacksonville Gators | Texas Lonestars | Nashville Blues | Chicago Wind Sox | St. Louis Archers | Boston Masons | Florida Blue Herons | Washington Potomacs | Philadelphia Liberty | Brooklyn Privateers | San Antonio Phantoms | St. Paul Loons July 4 Uniforms

    Cleveland Indians

    https://dribbble.com/shots/3570949-Cleveland-Indians
  17. I know this game has been in the news quite a bit in the past two days, but I've been a lover of the Congressional Baseball Game (CBG) for years. I like baseball, I like politics (this thread won't be (too) political, I swear), and I like the symbolism of our national leaders engaging in our national pastime for a day. I've always wished it was bigger, the way it (allegedly) was back in the 20s, when they wore party uniforms and had cheerleaders and elephants, so with all the brouhaha surrounding this year's game (Congratulations to the Democrats on their win and taking the series lead), I decided to break out my trusty old MS Paint and see what I could whip up. Note that both teams are, to some extent, what I think the teams would wear, and that I may take a couple (maybe more than a couple) of light hearted jabs at both sides. The Home Squad As I worked, a world emerged. The home team in white will always be the team that controls the House of Representatives, because the CBG was originally by practice, though not by statute, House only, and because to quote my old little league coach, someone has to bat first. In this case, that means Speaker Ryan and the Republicans get last licks. The GOP is by nature pretty old fashioned, stuck in its ways. We think we have a good thing going for us and see no reason to change it. Our team of old fogies is therefore in very conservative, perhaps even bland uniforms. A modified (removed the cut, moved the stars down) Republican elephant in white adorns a red-crown-white-bill cap, and the jerseys have... an R. It stands for Republican, you know. We just thought of that. The pants are a little funkier. As fans (okay, fan) of my New York Townball series (which I solemnly swear will be coming back, today was a rare off day in a busy season) will know, I like to play around with belt loops. For the GOP, wearing a Republican Red belt, their loops are blue and white (hey, it's red, white, and blue that way!). The pants are adorned with stripes whose width is, like our platform, stuck in yesteryear. The socks might be what I'm most proud of, you'll see them on the Dems, too. If you start at the bottom white stripe and count up, or from the top red stripe and count down, you'll get sixteen, the chronological number of the first Republican President, bAbe Lincoln. The Visitors I'll be honest, I'm less proud of this one, I think you'll see why. I thought to myself, "Self, what's more 2017 Democratic Party than really old people trying to appeal to the youth?" So when baseball fans Pokemon Go to the ballpark, they're going to see some gratuitous black in the mix here, which actually ended up looking pretty good with the Democrat blue. Black cap with the blue D and a blue brim (dammit, I love that hat I designed). The jersey was really tricky. No matter what gray I tried, the blue (which is the proper color, and which looks decent elsewhere, was all but unreadable (kind of like Obamacare) across the front, and I couldn't give it an outline that worked (or at all, I'm not quite there yet skill-wise). I considered making the jersey black (I have a version like that saved still), but in the end I settled on DEMOCRATS across the front in black. The font is the official party font (or one that looks a lot like it, anyway, I can't afford the real one #WeAreThe99). Pants are very nice and simple, with a blue belt held up by red and white loops, over the socks. It really doesn't work as well with the Democrats, the Presidential stripes, if only because they got started earlier and sixteen looks better than seven, and the odd number meant the whole sock had to be white so we didn't honor John Quincy Adams instead, Democratic-Republican that he was. So, yeah. There we go. Republicans v. Democrats. Elephants v. Donkeys. Right v. Left. Thoughts? Suggestions? Deletions? Comments? Interruptions? Expletives? If a mod thinks this post is too political, let me know, I'll remove the comments and what have you.
  18. I decided to continue with Northwest fictional baseball teams. The Seattle Volcanoes. The team name Volcanoes I really liked and I created the primary logo. I needed a city and I was deciding between Seattle and Honolulu ultimately going with Seattle because of the color scheme. Unlike my Portland team, I do have the files and I can update so C&C is very much appreciated. *Uniforms soon to come*
  19. Won't make a big production out of this (don't have all 30 teams done yet), but I've moved on from my NFL Soccer project for now. That was a good "beta" test, if you will, as I am still learning the game of soccer. Subsequently, I'm also learning the aesthetics of soccer. I'm hoping this concept (and eventually full project) will show some progress. This time, I'm working on creating new badges for every team. Some will be subtle differences from the real-life baseball team. Others will be 100% re-designs. This time, I've actually saved all the files so I can edit as critiques come in. So without further man-splaining, here's the first crossover: Los Angeles Not too much to explain here. You'll see in this project sometimes I get carried away with doing hoops all the time, but "The Angels" have a bit of variation. The home (red) kit has a pretty basic look. I chose two reds to help break apart the kit. I didn't want a huge red block of color coming at the viewer the whole time, a la Liverpool. I feel like this combats that a little bit. The away (white) kit also has hoops, but with a different feel. The one grey hoop directly above the crest is a tip-of-the-cap to the Angels' halo caps. You can also see a red yoke which represents the angels that everybody has on their shoulders...Or that could be Nike-style marketing BS. You be the judge. My favorite, though, is the 3rd. I wanted a complete recolor and, thankfully, the mid-90s provided some good inspiration for Los Angeles. Once put together, the kit is light blue-navy-light blue-navy in a row. I also re-colored the crest to match the new color scheme. Send some C&C love on these kits. Next up soon will be San Francisco FC.
  20. In this thread you can post a pic of that MLB stadium which, in your opinion, has the best backdrop. For me it's PNC Park: The Roberto Clemente Bridge over the Allegheny River along with the skyscrapers (specially the Fifth Avenue Place) create an unique view.

  22. Something that I randomly thought of the other day as I was listening to sports radio. The host kept mentioning the "Bullets" when talking about the then-upcoming Game 3 between the Celtics and Wizards and it made wonder if he was doing it intentionally because he hates the name Wizards, or if because the Wizards are playing Bullets dress up. My mind wandered to the logo of the Bullets before the name change how it went from an actual bullet through a basketball to....well this: and I wondered about other logos that showcase nothing about the nickname but instead focused on the sport in some form or another. Some that came to mind were: Any other ones you can think of that seem more to advertise the sport itself rather than the team?

    Toronto Frenchies Fantasy Baseball

    It's been a very long time since I've done any concept, let alone post one. I've been involved in fantasy hockey and football for years, but this year was my first foray into fantasy baseball and as such used it as my motivation to get behind the mouse. As such, I took John Benson's jersey and Jay Jaxon's cap templates and created this unique set for the Toronto Frenchies... (don't hold back on comments, my son described the away jersey as the "ugliest shirt he's ever seen".(and I own a NY Islanders "fish sticks" one...)

    Portland Wolves Baseball

    In my graphic design class, we got to do a choice project so I decided to create a baseball team. I just want to post it on here and get some feedback but won't be updating it due to me not having the correct files at my house. So without further ado: *The gray and white pants indicate they can be worn home or away

    "Dressed to the Nines"

    What has happened to the "Dressed to the Nines" section on the Baseball HOF website. It is no longer there. Does anyone know if this is temporary website maintenance, or a permanent deletion?
