Holy crap they still aren't dead?

 

huh, did some Googling -- and went some places I'm rather ashamed of -- on the internet and it seems like they ARE still alive? Well, according to the current ABA 2000 standings. Outside of that, their website is dead and they still haven't hit autocorrect on their name, unlike the local college which is known as the Grizzlies.

 

File this under a "The More You Know" moment you'll soon enough hope to forget.

Since Brandiose is involved its going to suck in a vaguely kitschy way anyway, so really "Gwizzlies" is the way to go.

There's no way the team goes with a similar nickname that the college 5 miles away uses. 

 

I like Gwinnett Choppers or Gwinnett Gophers if they want to keep Chopper as mascot. Gwinnett Choppers could also include a motorcycle theme. 

 

They could also be really trendy and go with Gwinnett Migos.

I suggested the Gwinnett Bwaves. 

 

It might not work for me as an adult, but when I was a kid I had a pwetty wicked speed impediment and this is how I'd say Braves. So, I'm honoring that ... my childhood.

Regardless of the name change, I predict a Waffle themed uniform to also be in the mix

The New Jersey Jackals of the independent Can-Am League have unveiled a new logo package.

Jackals Announce New Logo Designs

 

That has to be one of the biggest upgrades of the year in any sport, at any level. The old logo was truly hideous.

I almost got killed at a Jackals game back in 2004. Love the new package, a serious upgrade.

 

I am somewhat concerned that the text they're showing on the banner as an apparent default is Jackals.com, I'm not a fan of the increased presence of social media in sports. Teams wearing Twitter handles as NOBs, etc.

Well, that came out of left field...

Home plate, actually. I was seven, a broken bat almost took my head off (and then some jerk kid stamped on my hand and took the bat).

 

I only remember so well because it was the night of either the home run derby or the All Star Game. Fun time, but an ugly game (I think they were playing the Rockland Boulders) and seven year old BYF was very angry about missing All Star festivities.

So, I say the Pecos League is the worst of the worst with team logos.

Does anybody know what this is supposed to represent?  The team is the Alpine Cowboys, but it's just an "O" and a hook-like thing.

No gradient on the flames.  I know gradient elements can be a thorn in the boots of some people here, but it would give this logo some depth.

What is this supposed to represent, going back to Alpine.

Kinda fitting for a team that's already played their only two "home" games this season.

Like Santa Fe, it needs more gradient tones.

 

And, here's the worst of them all...

 

bakersfield.png

 

This is just the base logo, and it's blocky as hell, with a baseball bat that is too overdetailed.  And, for a record, here's a comparison between this logo and the other two areas (this team was a travel team in 2015, not unlike Hollywood this year):

 

Las_Vegas_Train_Robbers.png

Topeka_Train_Robbers.png

 

Note the only change in logos from all three locations (Las Vegas, New Mexico was the place they started out).

 

Sorry for all the logo space, but it's worth discussing.

The Alpine Cowboys play at Kokernot Field, built by and named after the family that owns the "o6" ranch. The "logo" is the brand of the ranch and the Kokernots. Fitting that a team named Cowboys would have a cattle brand as it's logo.

 

The logo of the Trinidad Triggers is just that, a baseball and a gun trigger.

The Pecos League is the NIFL of indy baseball leagues.

Those are... Not great. What's really throwing me off is the disparity between the different logos. The Cowboys' brand (punny) is simple, but it's clean and unoffensive. And then you go down to Santa Fe, and... That's a hot mess, there's a team wearing a clip art star, and Topeka is scary.

 

Also, Las Vegas, New Mexico?
