    Tampa Bay Rays: Back to 1998

    So, while doing the Premier League x Baseball crossover series, I had the idea of doing a next series about MLB tweaks. This comes from the re-designing idea I had for the Tampa Bay Rays. I think their current indentity is fine, but, IMO, the colours they use don't stand out, specially compared to the scheme they used dyring their first two years (from 1998 to 2000). That's why I decided to take their current wordmark and logos, using their original multi-colour gradient, using navy just for the trimming. These are the wordmarks from the jerseys: For the uniforms I decided to keep navy as seconary colour, adding the gradient on the cuffs, pants, socks and numbers borders. For the caps I decided to make the front white for the home and alt versions, inspired by the @Carolingian Steamroller's designs: NOTE: I know there are other TB Rays concepts on the forum, but I don't know if somebody has already tried this same idea. C&C appreciated!
  2. The recent "Battle of the Beltway" series between the Orioles and Nationals gave me an idea for special jerseys for mlb teams to wear throughout series with noted rivals, regional or otherwise. So here is the MLB Rivalry Series I started out with the aforementioned Beltway Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Nationals. This happens only every few years due to it being an interleague series, but is noted when it occurs I went for jerseys that really showcased state flags and here they are: For Baltimore I decided to use a cream base and orange numbers with black outlining. The centerpiece of this is the sleeve stripes that are made up of the Maryland flag. The hat is orange with the oriole and a brim of the flag. The Nats unis have a vintage feel with a red base and white sleeves. The sleeves feature the D.C. Flag and the numbering is white. The hat is very retro with the flag in white on a dark blue base and white brim. Id love to hear what you think of these, c&c appreciated and all posts liked. Also feel free to suggest future rivalry series. Thx!

    Sketchup Baseball Stadium

    I'm new to the forums, and I am on here to share my designs, mainly baseball stadiums. Without further ado, I would like to introduce my first stadium. It doesn't have a name or a team, but I hope to begin to incorporate those in the future. For this stadium, I took a lot of inspiration from Target Field and Kauffman Stadium. FYI, the mountains are just there to get a good grasp of how the sightlines are from the stadium, and the outside of the stadium is incomplete. Here's the shot from the top row of the lower bowl, you can see the bullpens in center along with the batters eye terrace. The high wall in right center allows for adequate standing room to hold more fans. Down the right field line, you can see the big building that houses a restaurant and game day offices (concessions, merchandise sales, etc.). Here's the view from home plate, same as the one above, but with the POV from the batters perspective. Here is the view from the standing platform in right center that I mentioned earlier. From here you can see the upper deck construction, suites, and press box. Here's a view from farther out of the stadium, where you can see the materials used on the outside of the stadium and get a better feel for the inside design of the field. Final view I have, on the front of the stadium (rounded portion) you can see the front offices, and main entrance. There are also entrances down the 3rd base line, 1st base line, right field corner, right field, and left field. The main team store is housed down the 1st base line (the thing that juts out of the main wall). As with everyone else, C&C is well appreciated! (I most likely won't edit this design but I will take C&C into consideration to improve my designs going forward.
  4. Monday, May 6, 1878 – Chicago, Illinois In 1878 the sporting goods equipment and retail business of Albert Spalding was thriving. As his wealth began to grow due to the business of sport, Spalding looked for every opportunity he could to foster the love of athletics in every American. Baseball was and remained his first love but his motive to diversify the love of sport caused him to look for other games he might elevate in stature. One game he found was the Swiss game of Hornussen. Spalding found the game fascinating and he felt that if he could get Americans to love the game as well it was one that would require its practitioners to purchase equipment; equipment he could sale to them. Thus Spalding resolved to organize a professional Hornussen league in the United States. He called the league the Professional Hornussen Players League (PHPL). He decided he would serve as the league’s first commissioner and he would sale four franchises. The charter of the league that he wrote stated that franchise owners would be fully proprietary, maintaining near complete control of their clubs. The first franchise he sold was to his friend William Hulbert. Hulbert was the owner of the baseball Chicago White Stockings. He wanted to name his Hornussen club the White Stockings as well but Spalding did not like this. He wanted his league to be distinct from any baseball league. Spalding suggested the name Pioneers to Hulbert and that stuck. Spalding remembered the name from the Rockford Pioneers, the first baseball team he ever played for. So William Hulbert’s team will play in Chicago and they will be called the Chicago Pioneers. The second franchise was sold to Morgan Bulkeley. Bulkeley was brought into the league by the suggestion of William Hulbert. He, along with Spalding and Hulbert, was a long time and early organizer of baseball. Bulkeley decided he would place his team in his hometown of Hartford, Connecticut. Outside of sports Bulkeley was interested in politics. As the league was organizing he was beginning to lay the foundation for his political career. Like many northerners at this time he was an avid fan of Abraham Lincoln and the 16th Presidents party the Republicans. In tribute to Lincoln, Bulkeley named his team the Hartford Republicans. The third franchise sold was purchased by Bob “Death to Flying Things” Ferguson. Ferguson was a player/manager in baseball and had worked for Morgan Bulkeley previously. He had also worked as a league director in the original National League. After purchasing his own team, Bulkeley talked Ferguson into picking up the third franchise in the league. Although Ferguson was very busy traveling with Chicago White Stockings at the time, he decided to place his team in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York. For a nickname he decided to dub his club the Brooklyn Swats. The name served as both an homage to his nickname as well as serving as a fitting name for a team in a sport where players attempt to swat a flying flute out of the sky. Finally Albert Spalding sold the fourth franchise. He got sports journalist Henry Chadwick to take ownership of the franchise. Chadwick decided to place the team New York City and call the club the New York Clippers. He gained inspiration for the name from the magazine that he was working for at the time, The New York Clipper.
  5. Here is the latest in my series of MLB Rivalry Faceoff concepts. No real reason I chose these teams other than the fact that they have similar names. The two Sox teams don't really have much of a rivalry and I believe they've only met in the postseason once. Still, I've had some design ideas for these teams and I thought this series would be a perfect opportunity to get them out of my system. Let's start with the Red Sox: Per @Discrimihater's suggestion, the Red Sox home jersey is inspired by the '80s Celtics warmup jackets. The road uni is loosely based on Boston's 1999 All-Star Game jerseys and puts the Red Sox in vests with the dangling socks logo on the chest. What do you guys think of the shamrock sleeve patches? Too much? Also, I really wanted to give the home set a red cap with white brim, but I couldn't figure out what logo to put on the front. Any suggestions? The White Sox home set incorporates elements from several early 20th century uniforms. I used the Shoeless Joe-era logo, the "crossing socks" cap design from their 1926 road set and the T-bars from the '40s jerseys. I also gave the jersey oversized buttons with pinwheels on them, an idea I took from mascot Southpaw's jersey. The road set is basically what they wore on the road for the first fifteen years of their existence, updated with their present day color scheme. The wordmark and numbers are from their notorious '76 unis. I really wanted to emphasize the WHITE in White Sox, so the home set has black stirrups over white sanis, while the road set has striped hosiery inspired by their 1917 World Series uniform socks. As always, C&C appreciated!

    iDcrisis: Minor League Mashup

    This is sort of like @ldconcepts NHL Identity Swap series, but with MiLB teams imitating their big-league teams logos. Not like, for example, a simple city-swap Tacoma Mariners, but a Mariners-style Tacoma Raniers logo. So the first team in this series, my hometown-ish team, the Durham Bulls imitating the Rays sunburst logo. It's meant to evoke the smoke a bull snorts out when it's mad or the home run sign when a Bulls player hits one out of the park. C&C and Requests Appreciated

    MLB Asian Heritage

    Thought you guys might get a kick outta this: http://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/archives/mlb_asian_heritage_concept.php#.V5y-86CDmrX
  8. Got into a discussion at work about various sports and their standard or non-standard playing surfaces. Specifically, in North American sports football, basketball and hockey all have identical measurements from one field/court to another. Soccer and baseball do not. Yes, I realize there's a difference between leagues (see: NFL vs CFL) but there is not a difference between teams in those leagues. The field measurements for the Cowboys and Steelers are identical. Or the Tiger Cats and Bombers. But they are very much NOT the same for the Yankees and Red Sox. Why is that? Does it offer more/better home field advantages in the sports where teams get to pick their own field size? Just interested to hash it out and get some folks' opinions.
  9. On Twitter and Instagram I am posting a new trio of baseball uniforms every day. I thought I would use the forum here to show them off as well. You can make requests, post opinions, or point out mistakes. I want to make these as accurate as possible and of course mistakes will happen. Having fresh sets of eyes on these have always helped me. You can follow me on Twitter at @DiamondUniforms and Instagram at @JayJaxon Here is Day 1. I'll post the second and third day shortly

    MLB Asian Heritage

    I love the idea behind MLB's Hispanic Heritage promotion, although at times the jersey executions leave a lot to be desired. So I thought MLB could benefit from reaching out to another segment of excited foreign fans and embrace the history Asian players have brought to the league, as well as show off some cool jersey designs on the field. I wrote a pretty in-depth piece on Medium which explores some Asian baseball history and some reasons why this promotion would be a good idea for the game. You can read it here: Major League Baseball Should Have an Asian Heritage Month -- And They Should Hire a White Guy (Me) to Design It In the meantime, to build some more buzz around this project and hopefully get the attention of MLB, I released a run of t-shirts of my initial designs. They're now available for purchase here: The Asian Heritage Baseball Collection @ Represent Below are some highlights from the project: You can view the entire collection on my Behance profile.

    Lights. Camera. Concepts.

    So, most of my concepts have a cool OP intro, but I couldn't really think of anything good to write, so basically, these are concepts for sports teams from famous movies. This is pretty much a topic to have a topic open and post some concepts while I'm finishing up some details on a REALLY big project I'm gonna overtake soon, so they won't be that good. So now the concepts. Team 1: The Bad News Bears Everyone on here has probably seen the movie enough to know that it is a great pinnacle in sports movies, and should be recognized. These are going to be concepts if these were real teams in their sports (for this team it's LL baseball). C&C Encouraged

    Globe Life Park Logo

    As a native Texan, I've been to more Rangers games than I can remember. As one of the most beautiful parks in the country, the stadium needs a logo that helps promote it's appearance. Therefore, I have decided to rebrand 'Globe Life Park.' More will come as soon as I feel the logo in finalized. Comments and critiques are welcome! Thanks!
  13. I've decided to take a break from my MLB in shorts series to work on something new and different. Inspired by @Discrimihater's fantastic MLB Rivalry Series, I tried my hand at a few lesser known rivalries in MLB. First up is the rivalry between the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners, nicknamed the "Vedder Cup." The name comes from Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder, who, despite being one of the more high profile Cubs fans in the world, has called both Seattle and San Diego home at various points. Let's start off with the Padres: Despite the fact that the Padres/Mariners rivalry didn't technically begin until 1998, San Diego and Seattle have a long history that dates back to the Pacific Coast League days in the 1960s. The Padres home set is based on this PCL Padres jersey and utilizes their present day color scheme of navy and yellow. The road set is a sand and brown version of their current alternate and uses the "Taco Bell" cap design with the Swingin' Friar sleeve patch. Next we have the Mariners: The Mariners home set is based on the Seattle Rainiers PCL uniform but utliizes the M's present-day colors. Hard to tell because these images are scanned in but the home set is off-white. Now, I'm particularly happy with how the Mariners' road set turned out. It's basically a cross between the M's blue & gold fauxback and their Turn Ahead the Clock one-off from 1999. Next up will be the Detroit Tigers vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates, and I have some crazy ideas planned for those teams. Stay tuned and C&C much appreciated!

    New Logo for SI Miners

    Hi folks, Just wanted to give the updated logo for the Southern Illinois Miners of the frontier league, a few small changes, the word "Miners" is now straight and the helmet that Big John (that's the name of the guy in the log) is wearing is now a baseball helmet. I work for the team so I can confirm that this is the official logo as of February 2016.

    MLB Military Home Base Salute Hats

    The league makes millions of dollars each year selling camo jerseys, hats, and other merchandise for special patriotic holiday games, and several teams now even sport camo uniform sets year-round. This is all done as a tribute to our military, however many think this tribute is beginning to feel more hollow and jingoistic. Is slapping a team's logo over the top of a camo pattern and donating a small portion of the profits really the best we can do to honor our nation's bravest? Introducing the Major League Baseball Home Base Salute, a chance to salute the individuals underneath the uniform -- not the uniform itself. Click here to view the full project on Behance.

    My Baseball Mogul '16 League

    Unfortunately, the game doesn't seem to offer the opportunity to create logos, except perhaps by modifying them in Paint. If anyone would like to create appropriately-colored logos for any of these teams, that'd be awesome, but nobody has to. Anyway, I just started a custom league in 1914, featuring all-fictional players and teams. There are 24 teams total, 12 in the NL and 12 in the AL. Each league is divided evenly into East and West divisions. I'll begin in the AL East, with the team I'm mostly controlling, the Providence Steamrollers of Providence, Rhode Island. I named them after the old Providence Steam Roller who played in the NFL in the 1920s; originally, I created this team in Baseball Pro '96 back in the late '90s or early '00s (this is the case with many of these teams). The Steamrollers are led by a do-it-all lefty ace named Pat McGary; the 34-year-old submarine-style hurler never gets as high as 70 with his fastball, but has an excellent screwball and two curveballs, and also throws a slow knuckler (~50 mph) and a frisbee slider (low 60s). The Steamrollers have the most conservative uniforms in baseball; here they are: Teams colors are navy blue (0-0-50) and grey (180-180-180). They wear only white and grey caps; they have unused alternates with blue caps. They wear pinstripes only on Sundays. Note: Next upload, I'll have to find a way to zoom in on the uniforms, because this doesn't give you a very good view.
  17. Hi everyone. This is a project I started few days ago, and I've decided to upload it here. I've been living in Spain for 13 years, but in fact I was born in Venezuela, where baseball is the most popular sport. My relatives are baseball fans, and I like it too. Unfortunately, it's not very popular here in Spain (there's a league, but it's not really known nor big), so I decided to create a fantasy baseball league based in Spain. I organized it in 4 divisions: Northern, Central, Mediterranean and Southern. You can see the divisions and the club locations in the following map: These are the temas from each division: · División Norte (Northern Division): o Marineros de A Coruña (A Coruña Mariners) o Sidreros de Oviedo (Oviedo Cider Makers) o Montañeses de Santander (Santander Highlanders) o Lobos de Bilbao (Bilbao Wolves) o Leones de Zaragoza (Zaragoza Lions) o Toros de Pamplona (Pamplona Bulls) · División Central (Central Division): o Gatos de Madrid (Madrid Cats) o Rebeldes de Móstoles (Móstoles Rebels) o Emperadores de Toledo (Toledo Emperors) o Romanos de Mérida (Mérida Romans) o Pucelanos de Valladolid (Valladolid Pucelle) o Morcilleros de Burgos (Burgos Blood Sausage Makers) · División Mediterránea (Mediterranean Division) o Barcelona Dracs (Barcelona Dragons) o Murciélagos de Valencia (Valencia Bats) o Castellers de Tarragona (Tarragona Castle Makers) o Turistas de Mallorca (Mallorca Tourists) o Palmeros de Elche (Elche Palm Makers) o Isleños de Menorca (Menorca Islanders) · División Sur (Southern Division): o Linces de Sevilla (Sevilla Lynxes) o Mozárabes de Córdoba (Córdoba Mozarabs) o Nazaríes de Granada (Granada Nasrids) o Boquerones de Málaga (Málaga Anchovies) o Corazones de Murcia (Murcia Hearts) o Chachos de Gran Canaria (Gran Canaria Lads) Tell me what you think about my fantasy league idea and if you would be interested on seeing the uniforms.
  18. History Founded in 2000, the league started with a mere four teams. The teams all wanted to have names based on the culture and history in Kansas, Missouri, and Kansas City. Four Founding Teams Kansas City Monarchs Pays homage to the former Negro League Monarchs Satchel Paige, Jackie Robinson, Ernie Banks, Buck O’Neil Only one losing season in their history Location: Leawood American League (2010) Prairie Village Pioneers Santa Fe trail passed through the area National League (2010) Lenexa Bison Bison used to roam the open plains of Kansas National League (2010) Shawnee Chiefs Deep Native American history of the region National League (2010) The league struggled at times, finding places to play, but the players endured.

    Milwaukee Brewers - Combo of Eras

    Hey guys. I've seen this a few times pop up in the MLB thread, talking about the Brewers. Now, I feel the Brewers have had some good jerseys, but never a 100% completely good set. Here, I've tried out a combo of eras. The colours I chose are a mix of each era (Using the RGB values. Adding em up & dividing them by 2/3.), with the Navy being a mix of the Royal, 90's navy and Current Navy, the Grey is a mix of the Grey they've always used with the Light blue from the 72 to 84 years. The gold is also a combo, combing the original Yellow with the shade of gold they've used since the Motre Bame era. The cap logo is the "M" they 1st used, while the Sleeve logo is a mix of the Motre Bame era & the original state patch they wore that I kinda meshed together. The scripts are from the '90 to 93 jerseys. This was just something that came to mind, and I think it turned out well. C & C is much appreciated, and I may make some more MLB jerseys if I can get around to it.

    SWB RailRiders Logo Concept

    Hey Guys! It has been a long time since I made a post on here. So I decided to make a logo concept for the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders. I am not saying their current designs are not good, I just prefer a more simple look. Here is a main logo and three alternate logos. I hope you like this one! C&C Welcome! Main: Alternate: Thank you!
  22. So I was thinking the other day about walkup songs, and was wondering, is there a rule in the MLB rulebook that states teams can't use offensive walkup songs against players in the MLB, or is it just too hard to come up with, because that is what my mind has been on ever since. So this is the thread devoted to coming up with offensive or mean walkup songs for opposing players. Some examples would be Bartolo Colon - SexyBack - Justin Timberlake Rougned Odor - Whip It - Devo OR Watch Me - Silento Discuss away! Mods, if this is in the wrong section, please move it. I wasn't sure where it would go, and this seemed like the best place.

    Miami Marlins rework

    Like most people, I think the Miami Marlins rebrand is pretty close to a hot mess. They ditched a look that was solid and worked for them and favored a look that made them look like a cheap version of the SF Giants. Now, while I think the execution of the rebrand was done horribly, I do think there are elements and some concepts that do work. They needed to blend the old with the new. So I took elements of the new and blended it into the past to, I hope, make a stronger brand. Let's start with the hat/main logo. I simplified the art deco style of the M so that it basically makes 2 Ms (for Miami and Marlins) and ditched the jumping fish. The fish always threw the hat logo into a lopsided logo that it seemed cleaner to simplify. Uniforms needed a focus on simplicity and going with the old Teal/Black/Silver color scheme. I've also added Burnt Orange, the orange they've favored in the rebrand, for a little accent color in the pipping. This is the Home and Away uniforms: I created an alternate throwback uniform that uses the old word mark and the jumping fish logo. I really embrace the teal and bring back the pinstripes. And finally, I decided to go crazy. I've created an alternate uniform in which I call "UM Pride" because Marlins Park is built on the site of the old Orange Bowl, which was home to the University of Miami Hurricanes. This is the one chance to have the Burnt Orange to get a bit more prominence. So what do you think? I wanted to get some opinions/feedback before I finish the project.
  24. the St Louis Cardinals are my baseball team and they have always looked good to great as far as I'm concerned. However I was pretty disappointed when they emoted the blue hats to "alternate" status a few years ago and added the unnecessary cream St Louis alt. If the Cardinals must messa round with their look, I would like to see them do something like this: There aren't many huge changes here. The biggest changes are probably the addition of an updated Sluggerbird sleeve patch, and the tweaked logos with yellow eyes as a throwback to previous iterations of the Birds on the Bat. I also removed the front numbers because I think baseball uniforms generally look better without them. I love the way the Cardinals have looked throughout their history when they wear a blue cap with a red bill, so it has become the primary cap and a red bird-on-bat cap would be the home Sunday cap. The changes are pretty straight forward and simple, but I think they do improve upon a look that is already very very good. Please let me know what you thing, I would love to ear some C&C. Thanks for taking the time to have a look.

    MLB Helmets - Central Divisions

    I decided I wanted to do a MLB helmets concept. Here is the AL and NL East divisions. Notes: If the logo or helmet is half and half, there are two helmets/decals. Not following NFL helmet rule
