Avon, Ohio Frontier League: Name the team


Burning River

Recommended Posts

Another "Name the Team" contest will begin shortly. Below is part of an article regarding a new baseball team. It will be located in a suburb at the West Side of Cleveland. My first thought is "AVON NOVA". Not a great name by any means. For some reason I think it would be a unique opportunity to create an Identity where the City name creates the Nick-name when spelled backwards. They are short enough words to where you can mess with upper or lower case custom fonts.

AVON ASKS FOR HELP WITH NAME

Name the Team! Avon Professional Baseball, the new Frontier League expansion team, is reaching out to the community to decide what name will appear on the players? jerseys when the team takes the field this spring.

Starting Monday, Oct. 6, fans will be able to submit their team name ideas online at the team?s website www.avonprobaseball.com (site launches Oct. 6). All suggestions must be submitted by Oct. 20, at which time the top five to ten names will be posted on the team website for fans to vote on their favorites. The official unveiling of the team name and logo will take place in mid November. The fan with the winning entry will win a fantastic prize pack of tickets and merchandise and will be recognized at a home game next summer.

?It is important to us that the community has a voice in naming the team,? said Steven Edelson, the CEO and managing partner of Avon Baseball, ?The best team names are the ones that are fun and creative but also reflect the people and the region they are a part of.?

The team has hired Plan B Branding, a creative ideas company, to take the community?s ideas and to develop them into a brand platform complete with logo, mascot and uniform designs. Plan B Branding specializes in helping Major League and Minor League teams create fanatics through storytelling, design and branding ideas.

?The team?s brand is more than a clever logo on a cap. It will grow to have a voice, a soul, a personality and a perceived value,? said Jason Klein of Plan B Branding, ?It will make fans react and become emotionally attached. It will answer questions, inspire confidence and make fans feel a part of the Avon Baseball family.?

A quick search on avon yields the home to the avon duct tape festival, and the duck brand. why not the avon ducks?

It could be the first baseball team with flannel plaid uniforms.

OK, submissions due 10/20...then 5-10 posted for final ballot afterwards (probably want two weeks for the vote; we'll say 10/31 for easy math)...AND logo/uniforms/mascot unveiled in mid-November (two weeks to design primary logo, alt logos, cap logos, mascots, uniforms...including client review and subsequent revisions and have merchandise available for sale at unveiling = TEAM NAME HAS ALREADY BEEN DECIDED.

The NTTTC is only to build a database of individuals expressing some interest in the team for future marketing (ticket sales) purposes.

AAO is already planning his series of vitriolic posts regarding the selection of the team name, and later uniforms.
