  1. The title speaks for itself. There are a lot of (some intentionally) ludicrous MiLB identities, but many are really sharp and have stood the test of time. This list can include teams that are now defunct. The original Zephyrs had a great uniform and name. Greg Seher designed a really nice set for a New Orleans Zephyrs expansion team with Mardi Gras colors on his blog but has since taken it down. The Jordan-era Birmingham Barons had a really classy identity. Add a dash of red and you're golden: The Hawaii Islanders had some wonderful uniforms over the years, but this one from the '90s might be my favorite: The Salt Lake Bees have a strong identity, albeit a bit derivative of the Pirates. Just put 'em in pinstripes and I think you'd avoid a lot of those comparisons. What are some other MiLB identities that you feel could hold their own in the Majors?
  2. Introducing the Lowell (Fidget) Spinners

    I am a terrible person Edit: yes, this was somewhat of a :censored:post-y concept, but it's not as much of a reach as some may think. I saw an online ad for "Spinners" the other day and immediately thought of the Lowell Spinners, the single-A short-season affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. Once I found out the team was already on board, I couldn't resist. Honestly, I think it's not that bad for a one-off (at least comparatively). I am still a terrible person
  3. MiLB | California League Logo Rebrand

    Another rebrand of a MiLB league logo. This time it's the California League whose current logo has been in use since 2000. No more baseball and bats, or gold and red, but orange and yellow as the two new colors. Link to current mark: http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/zag1rh2hfy5vrihmrhf6/_California_League/2000/Primary_Logo
  4. I was going to post this in the "Players in the Wrong Uniform" thread but didn't know if it should be there. Baseball and hockey have a rarity, that is until the G-League takes off and every team has an affiliate, in that players can come up and be sent down for a variety of reasons. It's always crazy when you see your star players suiting up for your farm teams. I got this idea when I searched for Ryan Braun while he was doing his rehab assignment in Appleton as a member of the Timber Rattlers as seen in this video.... http://www.milb.com/multimedia/vpp.jsp?content_id=1536087683&sid=t1174 As well as seeing the picture of David Ortiz playing for the same team when they were a Seattle Mariners affiliate. These aren't necessarily the wrong uniforms, just rare occasions. Are there others out there like this? What's even more rare about the above video is that it was also a famous MiLB "one off" night. Are there any others like that?
  5. I am personally fascinated by what's going on in Minor League Baseball right now, and the majority of that is due to Brandiose's reign of two-word nickname, food logo, baby cake of terror, which to be honest hasn't been all bad imo. There are things happening down in the MiLB that wouldn't have been dreamed of 20 or so years ago, and its like watching a blowout: Painful, but fun to watch it go down. So i got to thinking, with news of Brandiose sinking its toes into the minor league hockey pool, how long is it before they get their hands on the major leagues? Now if (when) in eventuality they do, they won't come at it with a Jumbo Shrimp ideal, but for fun, I'd like to think of what would happen if they did. So I'll be taking a TBD select number of teams from the MLB and making them look like they belong in the International League, starting with the Oakland Swingin' A's (Athletics).
  6. Yeah, I feel like the Dash's identity is already dated, no I didn't realize how ugly warthogs actually are. Y'all really don't read this stuff, so look at the concept and tell me what I did wrong.
  7. I've wanted for a while to do a redesign of the Midland Rockhounds logo, so as soon as the right idea struck me, i got to it. Their current logo is incredibly tacky and outdated, and needs a change really soon. So, i took the idea of Rockhounds and tried to add a little more meaning to it than just a dog with a rock, and instead i made a more realistically proportionate bloodhound with a coal miner's hat, which i envision becoming the symbol of the team and a big souvenir item. The shape behind is meant to represent a mine and the colors have a more Texas feel than before, and more appropriate for mining. Old: New: What do you think of this update for Midland? C&C much appreciated as always, thanks!
  8. Montgomery Biscuits Cleanup

    So, the Montgomery Biscuits have IMO, a 6/10 logo. My logo ranking is made is made up of two parts, Idea and Execution. It gets a 10 for the idea, but a 2 for execution. I mean you know you have a bad logo when the outline widths are noticeably different on the SAME detail/shape. This is probably more of a tweak than a full-on rebrand, but they're still more than 1 RGB step up on a color. I made the outlines consistent and tweaked the colors a little bit. If you don't know here's their old logo And my edition No fancy sheet right now. The uniforms I would like some feedback on the hands because I'm unsure how to make a good fist but I don't know how both hands open looks. Other C&C welcome though!
  9. MiLB "Hometown Collection"

    Am I the only one who didn't know this was a thing? Minor League Baseball is now selling retro merchandise, what they're calling the "Hometown Collection" Of particular interest to me are the two Madison, Wisconsin teams - the old Muskies and the Hatters, who were a one-year wonder when I was at the University (and who had the bestest name ever). Some of the teams and designs are very old - Ebbets Field Flannels old - but some are more recent. And those are the more interesting ones to me. Any Portland fans still missing baseball, they have this for you: I also like seeing the Queens Kings represented. They were the one-year identity for Brooklyn Cyclones after moving from St. Catherine's and while waiting for the ballpark in Brooklyn to be finished. What do you guys think? Is this old news? And what clubs would you like to see represented?
  10. So, I was browsing through the minor league baseball logo files and I came across a few that are in desperate need of a refreshing or... much more than that. One of the worst logos in my opinion was the Tri-City Dust Devils of the Northwest League whose main emblem is rudimentary at best. I also felt their design as a whole was dated, so i really wanted to take them on. I don't know if I'll work on a few more teams for this alongside my Updates & Overhauls thread, I'll just have to play it by ear, But I will be posting uniforms for the Devils. So, here is my take on the Tri-City Dust Devils: C&C is appreciated, Thx!
  11. Hi! Here's another redesigned MiLB league logo, the Pacific Coast League (Triple-A) mark. Their current logo is not good, not bad, just generic and mediocre. My redesigned mark has the shape of a U.S. Pacific Coast Highway 101 metal road sign. The color scheme is pretty much the same.

  12. MiLB | Eastern League Logo Rebrand

    Another MiLB league logo rebrand – this time it's the Eastern League. I picked a classic serif typeface and the Stars and Stripes motif because the history of the United States of America began in the Northeast. Here's the link to the league's current (and tremendously outdated) logo: http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/4971/_Eastern_League/19--/Primary_Logo
  13. MiLB | Pioneer League Logo Rebrand

    Another MiLB league logo rebrand – this time it's the Pioneer League's mark. The league operates in the Rocky Mountain region. The original logo is from 1990 and it's quite chaotic, messy and outdated. Link to the current logo: http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/ighch2wz0t8lr3zr7g039lil0/_Pioneer_League/1990/Primary_Logo
  14. This is my rebrand of the current MiLB Florida State League roundel logo which will turn 27 years next year. No more black but yellow-gold as a supporting color. Link to the original mark: http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/f2t8su1na369geehoftczekz6/_Florida_State_League/1990/Primary_Logo
  15. Eastern League

    Eastern League All-Star Game
  16. 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
  17. 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.
