New Twins Wordmark

Recommended Posts

They modeled it after County Stadium by putting it in a big giant ugly parking lot instead of downtown.

They have what seems to be the "Inaugural Season" logo for Target Field on the pocket schedule as well as the 50th Anniversary logo. I may try to scan them and start a new thread soon for people to see.

They've also started and probably finished by now, installing the classic Twins "Shaking Hands" logo that's also going to light up, and animate when home runs are hit:

This is going to be one amazing and beautiful ballpark! Maybe one day I'll see it in person...

LOVE IT!!!

I've always enjoyed the old-school Minneapolis Millers-St. Paul Saints players shaking hands logo! Glad to see that it'll be part of the Twins' new proper home run celebration! (and likely the full part of the new primary logo)

Some are still upset that Target Field has no retractable roof...I say that to me, that's just part of the authentic baseball experience...with the grass (NOT artificial turf) below and the sun (or moon and stars-NOT vinyl) above you and the feeling of a cool breeze in your face as you cheer on the home team...yup, as much as I enjoy Miller Park, I think County Stadium was a CLASSIC ballpark and wished that Selig had modeled the new park after that!

I?ve also got to agree, it is pretty awesome!

That's a strange definition of downtown Milwaukee. (I believe he was talking about Miller Park.)

I started a topic about that. There isn't a pic yet though.

I knew I had seen something with someone asking for a picture, but I must have skimmed over that. I really like it, and it's definitely it because it's the same one from the celebration sign.

Yeah, he was talking about Selig making Miller Park more like County Stadium. Why? Miller Park is cool. County Stadium was a forgettable dump.

Bite your tongue. I'd take County Stadium in its heydey over Miller Park in its in a heartbeat.

Sure, County Stadium might not have had fireworks after home runs, but at least the games were outside.

Forgive me for not knowing this but why is Selig based out of Milwaukee and Miller Park?

EDIT: Just found the answer to my question. He?s part owner of the Milwaukee Brewers. However, I would think that would sort of interfere with his duties as commissioner since he?s drawn more to one specific team.

Just to clarify - that's the Twins' new secondary logo...not the primary.

He's no longer the owner. I believe his daughter is now the principle owner. But when they removed "Acting" from his title, he had to cede his ownership in the team. He was when the push to get Miller Park was happening.

Seligs no longer own the Brewers. Sold the team to Mark Attanasio several years ago.

Was he sort of forced to give up his ownership due to his commissioner responsibilities?

He gave up control to his daughter Wendy originally. Then the family sold the team some years after that.

Ok enough Brewers talk-I still want to know more info the Twins changes for next year!!

Would you happen to know if the Twins are keeping 'MINNESOTA' as a part of their primary? I kinda hope that they don't. It always came off as a little out of place/forced to me.

Guessing this has already been answered but I haven't scrolled down yet: Bud Selig was the guy who bought the Seattle Pilots and turned them into the Milwaukee Brewers. When he became the commissioner, he turned day-to-day ops over to his daughter, which is about when the Brewers became a national laughingstock. Then he sold them to Mark Attanasio and they got good again.
