  1. 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.
  2. Sorry, Accidentally duplicated topic. Does anyone know how to delete topics? Thanks.
  3. Hello everyone, I've been a long-time viewer of these boards, as I have long been interested in sports logos and design. Having had many ideas and concepts of my own, I've always been interested in sharing, but lack the computer/photoshop skills to portray them the way I'd like to. The project that I'm now sharing is about as adequate as I can get using MS Paint. So here it goes. Ever since MLB released the Twins-inspired caps for the All-Star Game in 2014, I have been interested in the idea of having the hats be in a uniform theme, based on the host city. When this year's hats were released, I'll admit I was a little disappointed. Especially considering all of the past inspiration they could have drawn from classic Padres uniforms, which they instead used for the Home Run Derby gear. However, I saw room to use that inspiration in the actual game as well as the Derby. My concept draws the wordmarks of each team straight from the Derby caps, but each are given their representative colors to match the uniform. My goal for a lot of teams was to be able to use somewhat uncommon colors, such as the green for the Red Sox and some yellow for the Cardinals. Piping was added along the front to mimic the old Padres hats even more. The logos of the teams were kept on the side of the hat in order to differentiate each of them from being too "templeted." So anyway, let me know what you all think. Edit: Above is the original concept, below is the most recently updated version with added eyelets.
  4. 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.
  5. Good morning! I'm back with the second installment in my short MLB Rivalry Face-off series, inspired by @Discrimihater's series. Today I tackle the Detroit Tigers & Pittsburgh Pirates. Compared to my Padres & Mariners concepts, I got a lot crazier with these designs, at least for the road sets. Let's start with the Tigers: The Tigers home is based on the current uniform of the Erie Seawolves, the Double-A affiliate of the Tigers who for ten years were an affiliate of the Pirates. Ironically, they've kept their pirated-themed identity with a Jolly Roger flag and a wolf with an eye patch for logos. I considered putting the Tigers in pinstripes as that was what the Seawolves wore for about eight seasons after becoming Detroit's affiliate, but I was worried it would end up looking too much like the Yankees. I was reading that part of the Detroit/Pittsburgh rivalry stems from the rivalry between their NHL teams, so Detroit's road set is loosely based on the 1926 Detroit Red Wings uniform, which featured a "D" similar to the Tigers' Old English 'D' logo. Next up are the Pirates: As Q would say, "Now this, I'm particularly proud of." The Pirates and Tigers met once in the World Series in 1909, so the Pirates home set is based on their uniform from that year, updated with their classic color scheme. The road set is based on the Pittsburgh Penguins road uniform from the 1980s, back when they still wore Pirates colors, as opposed to the drab black and Vegas gold they use now. As always, C&C appreciated!
  6. 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.
  7. In a recent SportsLogos news post about Riddell giving a helmet to the Houston Astros with a design based on the team, author Demetrius Bell brought up the popularity of "crossover designs" in the concept world, combining a sports' uniform with the identity of another sports' team. In the end of the article, he asked the readers which baseball team would look best on a football helmet, which immediately sparked my imagination. After having done a handful of them, I decided I wanted to continue the project as far as my motivation would take me. Sports logos and design is one of my biggest interests, and this kind of project is simple, and addicting. I'm going to try and make what I think would be a realistic interpretation of how MLB (and perhaps other sports) teams' helmets would look like if they played football, and maybe a few alternates and throwbacks in the mix too. Not sure how much I will do, but I figure I might as well set it up just in case. I'll make a new post and add to the OP when I make new additions. I'm considering doing MLB and NHL requests, but only based on logos/identities, not original concepts! Clicking each helmet will bring you to the full-size version. MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL AMERICAN LEAGUE NATIONAL LEAGUE Baltimore Orioles Arizona Diamondbacks Boston Red Sox Atlanta Braves Chicago White Sox Chicago Cubs Cleveland Indians Cincinnati Reds Detroit Tigers Colorado Rockies Houston Astros Los Angeles Dodgers Kansas City Royals Miami Marlins Los Angeles Angels Milwaukee Brewers Minnesota Twins New York Mets New York Yankees Philadelphia Phillies Oakland Athletics Pittsburgh Pirates Seattle Mariners San Diego Padres Tampa Bay Rays San Francisco Giants Texas Rangers St. Louis Cardinals Toronto Blue Jays Washington Nationals ALTERNATES/THROWBACKS: Oakland: alternate (2011-current) / throwback (1993-94) NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE The only ones I've done so far are the Florida Panthers in celebration of their rebranding, the Carolina Hurricanes alternate, and the Pittsburgh Penguins 1992-2002 throwback. This format and project are both a work in progress. Feedback on either would be appreciated!
  8. I guess if you wanted to you could extend this to design as well. Anyway, what are some unusual color schemes that have worked well? I immediately think of the NBA in the 1990s, where the Nuggets (navy, copper, red), Grizzlies (teal, black, salmon---really unusual third color), Raptors (purple, red, black), Sonics (dark green, maroon, yellow), and Jazz (purple, copper, black, sky blue) all worked with unusual schemes, although the Nuggets watered it down a bit with a very conservative design. (You could also say that the Edmonton Oilers had a very similar color scheme to those Nuggets for awhile, although the Oilers' "copper" was really more like gold and navy, red, and gold is not an unusual color scheme at all.) Alternatively, what are some that haven't worked? You could argue either way on the '90s Nuggets, I think. Obviously the Detroit Pistons' teal, maroon, yellow, and black getup watered down what had been a very strong brand. The early-aughts Bills' dark blue, red, royal blue, and "nickel" uniforms were atrocious, possibly the worst in NFL history. The Miami Dolphins have always had a unique scheme, but while they don't look awful right now, they probably do look worse than at any other time in their history. The original Buccaneers would be another that would split opinion. Anyway, my faves: 1. 1980s-1996 Dolphins 2. Original Grizzlies 3. Expansion Rays and D-backs (put together) Least faves: 1. 2002-10 Bills 2. 2002-10 Bills 3. 2002-10 Bills Dishonorable mention: '90s Pistons
  9. Mods: Feel free to place this in the appropriate forum if this isn't it. I used to love Baseball Mogul, but it bothered me that all the teams and players looked the same. Beginning with Baseball Mogul 14 (paradoxically, the 2013 version of the game), players can design team uniforms in a limited fashion. Choices are limited to hat color, shirt color, pants color, and pinstripe color (I believe pinstripes can be turned on and off as well). That opens up another world in terms of the visual aspect of the game (although I wish they'd include sock color for all uniforms, and shirt and pants stripes for non-pinstriped ones). I'm wondering if I should get it now - it's only $25. I loved the career play and the wide variety of pitches available on the old games, plus of course the historical aspect of it, and I'm sure those have only gotten better in the intervening years. So, for those who have BBMogul 14 and later...do the uniform design options expand any in the later games? Do 15 and 16 have any huge updates that make them worth the extra money? How much do the custom unis improve the visual aspect? Do any of them have custom logos or stadium backdrops enabled? Any input is much appreciated.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. With the US opening trade with Cuba could the team with the MLB's lowest attendance be moving south?
  14. With the US opening trade with Cuba could the team with the MLB's lowest attendance be moving south? (rough)
  15. In honor of the Purple One, and inspired by the purple logo the Twins used on social media following his death, here's a quick concept for a "Purple Rain" Twins uniform. C&C appreciated.
  16. Hi! I was wondering if the Seattle Mariners have a new logo. Well, I saw Daring Do's Cutie Mark and it looks similar to today's Mariners logo. I edit it and put the text "Seattle Mariners" inside it as well as the trademark on the outside. So, New Mariners logo based off My Little Pony?
  17. Hey guys. Now I don't know if you would consider this a "concept" or a wallpaper, and I don't know if I stole someone's idea, I know I'm not making sense, but here I go. Recently, I have come up with "Sports States", and I don't have any words to describe the idea, so I'll give you guys an example. Yes, these are wallpapers. But I don't really want to explain much, sizes may vary, blah blah blah, etc. All I'm saying is that I'm making these "wallpapers" and I am also accepting requests for wallpapers. All you have to do is give me a conference or a league division (I'm not doing full leagues) and I will whip up a nice Sports States wallpaper for you. I will allow requests for most sports (Although I'm not sure about lacrosse), if it's college, professional or sometimes high school sports, I would allow it. I don't want to get this too long so I'm ending this post and I will start accepting requests.
  18. So the other day I was watching MLB Central and they were talking about the Padres. One of the hosts said something along the lines of, "As the owner of the Padres, where do you go next to fix this ball club?" So I got to thinking, being the sports logo/uniform lover I am, I would start be tweaking the teams identity. I then looked over at my Green and Gold military appreciation Padres on field hat, and thought about how that is my favorite color scheme to see the team wearing. This redesign is what resulted. I wanted to take their current wordmarks/logos and make some color changes, tweak the uniforms, and give them an updated primary logo. My goal was to stay simple and not get too crazy with it, so here it is. New Primary Logo: Home Uniform: Road Uniform: Alternates: BP Uniform:
  19. Inspired by my band directors Washington shirt with all the teams on the one shirts, I decided to recreate that with my home state after he put me on blast for talking about the Washington-Pittsburgh series. So here's my recreation. C&C is appreciated.
  20. So I previously did a concept called "stadium series" and decided I wanted to make a league out of it. So without further ado, I present the North American Baseball Association (NABA). First team up, the San Antonio Rebels. I really love the way this turned out! The stadium is called HEB Park. The backdrop of the field is a little shopping area with a strip mall, HEB, mall, and Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream. Behind home plate there is a commercial district with an arena, office building, and parking garage. View from the entrance behind home plate. here you can see the backdrop, and also the tall wall in left field, which is 35' high, because the park is only 290' to left. The wall also doubles as the visitors clubhouse, the team offices, as well as the rooftop deck which fans can sit/stand on during the games. As said above, here is the view from the rooftop deck. Not much else to be seen here. Here is the view from the top step of the Rebels dugout down the first base line, where you can see the old school scoreboard on the left field wall, as well as the Alamo shaped scoreboard on top of the roof. Here is the view from the visitors dugout, and you can see down the 310' right field line. Also note the Alamo replica building which is the Rebels clubhouse. The clubhouse is several levels, with the training rooms, batting cages, and extra amenities underground. Here's a view from the Rebels clubhouse, where you can see the home plate and third base line entrances, as well as the club level, which has 17 suites, the press box, and the club level bleachers. Here is the view from behind home plate, most of what is to be seen has already been noted, so I won't touch on it anymore. Ariel view of HEB Park. Parking lot in right field, with the main entrance in the right field corner.
  21. *MODS: Move this to "unused logos and uniforms" if you deem it necessary.* Admittedly, this is kind of speculative, but there is some logic to it. First off, did any of you have 1993 Donruss MLB cards? Their design was to have a bar with the player's name and position running across the bottom of the card, with a faux-3D diamond-shaped box in the bottom left containing the team's logo. The bar was one team color and the box was the other. They were very accurate in this regard: the Mariners were navy and teal, the Brewers were blue and yellow, the Tigers were navy and orange, the Red Sox were red and navy, the Rockies were purple and gray, etc. Anyway, the Marlins were teal and orange, similar to the Miami Dolphins, as illustrated by this card of Jeff Conine. Neither the Rockies nor the Marlins had black as one of the colors, although other teams (such as the Pirates) did, so it wasn't an issue of being unable to produce the 3D effect with black. The Rockies have always had silver/gray as a tertiary color, but the Marlins (pre-rebrand) never used orange. Was this an original plan that was scrapped shortly before the start of their inaugural season? Does anyone else know about this? Or was it perhaps just chosen by Donruss because of its resemblance to the nearby Dolphins, with black not yet officially a Marlins color? Or could it have been a mistake, albeit the only one that I have been able to find from that set? Just curious.
  22. The rules here are simple: No rebranding, and no adding new colors to the scheme. I'll start with the NFL: AFC East Patriots: No side panels. Dolphins: More orange. Jets: Standardize the shade of green. Bills: De-taper the helmet stripe. North Bengals: No side panels. Browns: Remove wordmark from pants. Steelers: Dump bumblebee alternates. Ravens: Put stripes on black pants. South Colts: White facemask? (Can't really think of one for them.) Titans: Make helmet stripe more, um, "normal." Jaguars: Kill gradient. Preferably back to plain black helmet. Texans: Make red jersey primary. West Chiefs: Get sleeve stripes fixed where they're not getting cut off midway---probably move them up. Broncos: Trim side panels so they don't intrude onto the front of the jersey. Chargers: Make light blue jersey primary. Raiders: Can't think of anything. NFC East Cowboys: Drop black trim from sleeve stripes. Giants: Red alternate? Add small amount of red to blue jersey? Not sure. Eagles: Green pants full-time with white jersey, never with green jersey. Redskins: Burgundy pants at least as an option. North Lions: Drop black altogether. Packers: Kill blue throwbacks. Bears: Orange numerals on blue jerseys full-time. Vikings: Shiny helmet instead of matte. South Panthers: Bring back black pants. Saints: No black-over-black. Falcons: 1990s throwbacks. Buccaneers: Change number font. West Rams: Gold pants. 49ers: Kill black alternate. Seahawks: Slightly more green (for what it is, they pull off their look extremely well). Cardinals: Kill red pants.
  23. Had a couple ideas to update the NHL and MLB logos. Looking for a bit more neutral colors, I decided to make the interior and outer stroke is a cream color while the inner stroke and NHL letters are in a deep ice blue. The shield itself is close to the it’s current shape, with the center more pointed at top and bottom. This started a while back looking at the MLB logo and thought it was time for an update. The rounded rectangle is replaced with a diamond. The interior of theDiamond is a familiar blue and red, with an added white and navy blue outline. Adjusted the bat of the batter so the top is rounded. The batter complete blends with the white stroke and MLB Font now in navy blue. Still feel like the MLB one isn’t done. I mean I like it, but you know how you feel like somethings off? Just not sure what it is.
  24. I did a best uniform tournament for the NFL and now it's the MLB's turn. Vote for your favorite in each division. Voting ends Friday at 8:00 ET. AL East: AL Central AL West NL East NL Central NL West
  25. The Twins have been using the same colors for almost the entire existence of the organization. They need to do some re branding in the next few years. The last time they had success was around 2009 and they started the 2016 season 0-9... They have potential, but they should probably get a strong fan base around them and take the Royal approach. I think that the Twins had some success in the past with the design of the logos and kept most of them looking similar to what they were. Now with colors Green, Black, and I kept the Navy. Primary Cap Logo Wordmark
