Mexico's First MLB Team, A Concept

According to an interview with Bud Selig, MLB won't be expanding for a while yet, but when it does, it will most likely be in Latin America. My concept for MLB's first Mexican team is inspired by sports clubs in Europe that have teams in several sports, such as FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Here is Club America de Beisbol.

I made the home unis primarily yellow and the roads primarily blue, to reflect the colors of the franchise's soccer uniforms. Where should I go from here? I'd like to add some more red somewhere, but I can't decide where.

The sleeve patch looks too much like it's a map on top of a soccer ball. Maybe replace the lines with baseball seams.

It's CA's official logo, but maybe I could make it a baseball, if the colors don't make it look too much like a softball...

Something about the script is just not right.

I hand-drew it. That's probably why. xp

Here are my problems:

-Pick a different number font. That Pirates one isn't working.

-As eriqjaffe said, putting baseball seams on it would help out the primary logo a lot.

-I just can't imagine an MLB team being created with no mascot.

-The red on the cap logo and the patch feels out of place. Either add red or make part of it white.

-The scripts are rough, but thats understandable for a first draft.

Overall I think this concept has a lot of potential and can go very far with some fixes. Good job!

How does this work for you?

That last one is just a quick & dirty recolor if you think the yellow version is too "softball". I missed a couple parts of the map, and the stroke on the CA is a little odd, but that's what happens when I spend 2 minutes on it. ;)

Personally, I think the yellow background is more distinctive.

Wow, thanks a lot. I agree about the yellow background. I already made a baseball version of the logo, though, since I didn't know you made some for me...

Also changed the numbers, fixed up the wordmark a bit, and threw together an alternate logo with a mascot, reflecting their traditional nickname, the Aguillas, Spanish for "Eagles." Problem is, I'm not sure where to use it. Maybe I'll make an alternate jersey or something.
