Our First Look at Baseball’s 2021 Spring Training Logos

September 17, 2020 - 13:26 PM

I think we can all get behind looking towards 2021 as quickly as possible. Major League Baseball yesterday unveiled the logo for its 2021 Spring Training campaign as well as the individual Grapefruit League (Florida) and Cactus League (Arizona) logos. As with recent years, the Spring Training logos follow a

I like them. I'm just happy these were released now, instead of December/January.

 

These local motifs of the last couple years are better than the more generic interstate signs from ~2015-2017.

 

Also, this news might be the first "2021 MLB Changes" news.

As a road sign geek, I was a fan of the signs.  This is cool, but the 2021 separated looks more like a hockey or basketball logo for 20-21.

I know that it wont happen until either a new stadium and or a sister-city deal (vomits typing that). But i would love to see some update to the Rays look. 

I would prefer the old Devil Rays look. But instead of black being used. It is replaced with a lighter shade of navy blue. 

So this. But the shade of navy blue a little lighter. Something that pulls from the left side of the "D" in Devil in the jersey. Maybe even having a slight hint of purple to the hue.

I wish they would drop the navy and go powder blue and yellow. Maybe navy as a shadow or outline color.

I've always thought that indigo would be a nice bridge between the current navy and the retro purple. Maybe have powder and gold as the primary and secondary and indigo as a trim/tertiary color.

Yes. An indigo would be great.

At this point, I wouldn't bet on fans even being allowed at spring training next season.

Wonder what that would look like replacing the navy blue?

I'm still hoping Miami gets the proper tweaks and emphasizes the blue over the black.

 

I hope so too, but it's going to take some rather large "tweaks" to make that happen. The logos and wordmarks are super black heavy. Blue only really asserts itself in their spring training/BP uniform, but they need to redesign that to make it suitable for regular game use.

I saw some highlights of Miami in the black jerseys the other day and I don't even see how MLB approved those.  Can't read the wordmark, numbers, or NOB.

Either make the outlines thicker or scrap them. This can't go on.

I loved the shade of green they had.  Have we ever seen a green/blue/gold?

The Brewers tried that in the mid 90s. Not that my opinion counts for any. But the I think the colors and execution were terrible

The Marlins need to change their black jersey, it's horrible on TV.

Just fill the letters with white or blue (and make the outlines white if they go that route)

It's horrible everywhere, not just on TV. I get that they're going for the neon aesthetic, but it doesn't work. Either make the outlines significantly thicker or (better idea) make the name/number/NOB blue with a white outline and a red shadow. Change the cap with it, as well. From any distance it looks like it's just plain black with nothing on it.

The Marlins should take a page from the Miami Heat vice jerseys. Black jersey with neon blue city name and neon red numbers (keep the same Marlin fonts and shades of blue & red).

 

It would achieve the neon vibe while making it more legible. spacer.png

This still looks like neon lights, but, you know, actually legible.
