MLB Changes 2020

Recommended Posts

The cartoon bird is atrocious, a blemish on the great Earl Weaver system. The realistic birds were better but still bad. There should be a B on the cap, always should have been. Maybe a B that does cool spirally wruoght-iron things. I'd draw one if I were any good at it.

While I usually prefer city initals on hats. The O's hat was pretty cool imo. I also liked the realistic bird better than the cartoon bird.

They already have this great logo in their history:

Good but not great, the Old English steps on Detroit's toes. Gotta be something unique.

I'll start by saying I really like the cartoon bird.

 

But if you're looking for a B hat logo, what about just taking the B from the Baltimore jersey script?

Cursive B, then (that's my design).

If they were to have a B monogrammed cap, using the B from the road Baltimore makes a lot of sense and looks unique enough to stand on its own.

Detroit doesn't have a copyright on it.

 

No obviously not, but B and D are similar shaped letters and putting them in a similar font would be stepping pretty hard on Detroit's toes.

 

You'd also crossing into Birmingham Barons territory too.

Yeah, but that’s the same argument people make about the Yankees and Mets.

 

Similar letters are going to look similar. Don’t think that’s a real issue, especially with a minor league club.  Even if they are borrowing an historic name.

To not start another war but why haven’t the Angels done anything to embrace LOS ANGELES? It’s been 15 years since the name change and there’s never been a jersey, a logo, or anything. 
I think that’s what bothers me the most. You wanna be an LA team so badly yet refuse to use its name in anything. 

 

Its a pretty classic case of trying to please everyone, yet not actually pleasing anyone.

Absolutely.  Moreno should have just ripped off the band-aid.

I didn't expect to get upset when I clicked on this thread (re: negative comments about the Cartoon Bird).

With so many baseball teams wearing a letter on their cap, it's a nice to change of pace for the Orioles to wear a bird logo. I'm surprised people are against the concept. Disagreement on cartoon vs realistic, I understand. But not wanting a bird on the cap at all? Nonsense!

When did they wear this? I looked it up and it says 1955, but I didn’t find any pictures of players wearing it.

I think it was a batting helmet logo only.

I agree, I like the bird on the cap.  The B would be nice for an alternate (replace the O's cap), but I don't think it's strong enough for the primary cap logo.
