That's disgusting. Worst World Series logo of all time.

I wouldn't call it disgusting. It's actually playing up the "World" in World Series and I think it's pretty clever. As for worst WS logo? I'd say 2016 takes the cake.

Bland, boring, nothing special about it.

I wish they would just modernize the 80s-90s world series logo and stick with it

Nope. 2021 is still worse. Ideawise, yeah the new one is better than that. But the execution is where it falls short. The overuse of basic, free fonts with excessively used gradients and shadows to go along with white lettering that has no outline so that where the parts that go outside the ball are barely visible due only to the aformentioned shadowing. It looks like a quick concept someone made in photoshop as merely an idea to refine, but got lazy and just submitted this at the deadline.

I disagree with this. I fall more in line with what @MNtwins3 suggested in terms of modernizing the '80s-early '90s WS logo. But I think the example you offer here is pretty interesting. I hadn't given it much thought before now, but I actually really like the effect of including just one seam of the baseball into the logo. It's gives you the sense of the shape of the ball without forcing the logo into that shape.

 

That said, this logo fails to convey the grandeur of the World Series. But it's far from the worse example.

Per the ESPN article:

 

"The plans, announced by MLB on Thursday morning, include an annual tribute in which uniformed personnel will wear a jersey patch celebrating Gehrig, and a "4-ALS" logo -- commemorating his No. 4 -- will be displayed around stadiums. The league will use the occasion to raise money and awareness to battle ALS and pay homage to ALS advocacy groups like the LG4Day committee, which turned an off-the-cuff text into a cause that will bring together the sport."

Getting some real Atlas Shrugged vibes from that new World Series logo.

 

If there was a "man" (Atlas, the Titan god) with the globe on his back or held up in his arms...sure.

 

But just a globe with baseball stitches doesn't strike me as a strong connection.

World Series lowered on the image, dark and ominous look, MLB's basic approach towards management of its clubs, etc.

LOL I think you're reading way too much into it. Confirmation bias is a powerful thing.

Eh, I find Ayn Rand to be a truly terrible author and human, but I think this is a reach.

A WS logo with Atlas holding up a baseball globe could be a cool concept ngl. Don't know if it would actually work, but it sounds cool

Baseballs should never be blue.  If they're going to use the ball then it should look at least a little like the ball.  Messes with my mind when I'm looing at a globe, but then I realize it's a ball, but balls shouldn't be blue (grow up), so what the hell am I looking at anyway?

The shadow details of those logos doesn't seem very scalable. I can't imagine that WS logo looking nice as a patch, especially.

Pennants on the LCS logos but not the World Series logo.

 

Congrats to the NL Champ who beats Boston in the World Series

Since the 2019 World Series logo was revealed, I always wished that would be the permanent World Series logo. It and the other logos in the package were AWESOME.
