Minor League Baseball on-field changes

Recommended Posts

Some name changes have already been discussed (Mongomery Biscuits, SWB Yankees).

But this may be a good time for putting these in one thread.

Starting with the Columbus Clippers, upon ending a half-century as the Yankees' farm club, taking on the Nationals' lettering and colors. This is the alternate jersey:

This is the logo on the new cap (which I assume will be either red or blue, not gray:

The Lakeland Tigers are the Lakeland Flying Tigers:

And there's a team in the Texas League next year that is located in Northwest Arkansas, and it will be called The Naturals.

I see a lightning bolt patch on the left sleeve and movie score music on every home run.

Are they dumping the old Cap logo, because I really liked that one.

What change did the Montgomery Biscuits make? I don't remember anyone mentioning anything from them.

--Roger "Time?" Clemente.

Me neither. I just searched this forum, and it didn't have anything about any changes to the Biscuits.

They could be adding a Southern League champions patch.

I know the Bisons have a new look for this year. I can't find any pics of the new unis, but I will be at the opener on Thursday and probably will bring a camera.

The Bisons will have a new look for home games in 2007. The modified Home Jersey is no longer sleeveless. The new sleeved jersey has the swirling baseball under the "B" in Bisons with a black number under the team name. This jersey will be complimented with an all black hat with the customary swirling baseball around a B logo. A new Alternate Jersey will be red with white trim. On the left crest is a white baseball with a black standing buffalo. This jersey will be accompanied by a black hat featuring the same standing buffalo baseball and a red bill. Both new jerseys will be worn with white pants that have a single black trim.

I didn't know there were Devil Rays in Michigan.

Or Princeton.

Princeton only makes sense since the Appy League (and most Rookie league teams for that matter) tend to use the parent club moniker. As to why SW Mich did this, I have no clue...maybe they knew a move was imminent and decided to forgo a name change until a new team venue was ready.

They were the Battle Creek Yankees before the affiliation switch (draw your own conclusions there)....
