McHenry County K-Nines

Cute. Appropriate for the minor leagues though.

Very cute, but not in a bad way. It's up there with the Biscuits. I agree with Chickenfish13, I like the cap logos better. Seems like there's too much green flowing throughout.

Looks like Flynndesign work

If it ain't Flynn, it's an exact duplication of his style. Great for minor leagues.

I do like the primary logo, but I wonder about the tiny use of red and blue. Could have killed the blue and just used the red in the place name.

I really like every element of this set ... except what I assume is the home jersey script. I've never been a fan of the whole city-name-on-the-nickname-underline thing; that looks rec-league, not professional. And in this instance, the way that it forces the underline to ride over the descending leg of the K rather than the other way around, as in the primary logo, is unfortunate. Plus, adding the location name to the nickname script complicates the team's ability to market its identity to youth leagues.

If the team were to use the shorter "K9s" logo as a left-chest script at home, I'd rate this set just above the Biscuits. For me, the substandard "K-Nines" script turns a solid B-plus set into a B-minus.

Don't forget Joliet too. Though with the team behind on payments to the city for rent, who knows about them.

Then you have Kane County sitting there with over 15 years of experience as an affiliated club.

I kinda get the feeling that in 20 years or so all these stadiums won't look like the best investment for towns.

Agreed...And youth leagues do enjoy using minor-league baseball team names too! (just ask the Lowell Spinners and their Yankees Elimination Project)

Not bad. Looks good for the minors, the two cap logos are nice. I'm not too fond on the scripts, too slanted IMO, I think it would probably be difficult to read from a distance, but I guess I'd have to see it in action.

Also, I have no idea why the "McHenry County" is blue on the primary. Any reason to it, because it's not included anywhere else in the set. Overall, I like this.

MBurmy, no offense to your logo (I like it) but have you tried it with a different font? Maybe you could throw the K-9 in a circular crest or something like the Pacers center court logo, or the Texas Rangers logo.
