Minor-League, Indy & Summer Collegiate Baseball Logo / Uni Changes

Recommended Posts

All of their on-field caps have been on clearance since the end of the season, and I did get confirmation that there would be new caps. No idea what they will look like, though the teaser suggests the gator theme.

This is a teaser for the Lowell Spinners new logo, scheduled for release tomorrow.

Looks like they could be using the "Canaligator" in the logos.

Definitely going to be the Canaligator. They've had one (or three) as their mascot for a while now.

So it appears Lowell is pulling exactly what Vermont did with "Champ" a few seasons ago. That definitely will not be confusing...

Way too much going on in that primary logo..  

 

Took nearly the exact words right out of my mouth. The canaligator is just fine in and of itself, it definitely doesn't need the buildings at all.

FIVE hats? Woof. Other than that, pretty well-executed, save for the slightly busy primary.

 

I know the concept of "to look like the parent club, or not to look like the parent club?" has been discussed on this thread, and my take on the Spinners is that it works. When the affiliate in question resides in the same state/region as the parent club (in this case an especially small state in Massachusetts), I think adopting a motif or a large portion of the parent club's identity makes sense due to the fanbase (i.e. navy-and-teal Tacoma Rainiers, Gwinnett Braves, Springfield Cardinals). That doesn't mean it always should be the case--and on the flip side, that's not to say that an affiliate located in another state/region can't adopt a parent club motif--but this is where it works best.

Five hats, and none of them is the hat the alligator is wearing in the primary logo.

This is the problem that I have with the new logo set. Depict the mascot wearing the simplest of the caps - blue with the red L - and call it a day.

I'm just glad they kept the "S Spinner" logo. It's got that special charm to it.

I wonder how the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders' introduction of their "Baby Bombers" alternate logo is sitting with the New Orleans Baby Cakes?

It's been just 2-1/2 months since Brandiose rolled-out the new Baby Cakes identity for New Orleans. You'd think that they'd have tried a bit harder not to ape another client's newly-unveiled identity package when generating the alternative mark for the RailRiders.

That new L primary cap is pretty sharp. As for the primary logo, I get why they did it. Lowell is known for it's mills so they wanted to include that in the logo for those ignorant of history and don't understand the Spinners name.
