MLB What Might Have Been... Team(s) that almost happened but didn't...

Recommended Posts

I recently read an article on here by @CC97 about the original owner of the Marlins wanting to name the team the Flamingos. The article also mentions the idea of going with South Florida instead of just Florida or Miami. Both of these ideas were ultimately shut down but I thought it would be fun to make a concept of what might have been. I had a blast making this and would love to explore other options if anyone has any info on team names that almost happened but didn't. Especially any that are as wild as this one. Hope you enjoy!!

Really fun SF concept. I've always wondered what the South Fla Flamingos would have looked like. Nice work!

Thank you! Glad I'm not the only one who has been curious about that.

There needs to be a "What if" promo and marlins need this! 

A league-wide "what if?" promo would be incredible. Some teams would have to fake it like the Rays do with their fauxback uniforms. I'd love to make more of these concepts, just need to find some other good options

A slight change of angle with the legs, and you have an F to go with the S of the body.

I considered this while making it and really liked the idea but couldn't really pinpoint a solution. It just never looked like an F to me. One leg was the base of the F and the other came across but it was missing the 3rd line and looked more like a T or a 4 to me. Would you get rid of the other F entirely? Or keep the original F in addition to the legs F?

I think both would be redundant. The implicit S and F would make up South Florida, with the Flamingo itself standing for Flamingos
