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

Recommended Posts

Because few people outside of Connecticut knew that Hardware City referred to New Britain, the place-name was eventually changed and a new logo, incorporating stylized "NB" initials, was unveiled to go with it.

for the life of me I never realized the cat was wearing sunglasses in this logo. I always thought it was some random raccoon-like eye shading

Ballpark Business is reporting that the Nogales Desert Ghosts of the all-but-defunct independent American West Baseball League have apparently been resurrected as the Yuma Desert Ghosts of the proposed indy Western Association of Professional Baseball. Flynnagain Productions is responsible for designing the team's new logo package.

Sure hope Flynn got the money up-front.

Beats the living blazes out of the squiggle they used last year.

Another year, another proposed SW baseball league. Call me when they fold before every playing a game.

There is a lot going on with the Desert Ghosts design - wordmark, snake, skull, ball, and the circle containing YUMA. My eyes aren't sure what to focus on. Flynnagain must be doing something right since they still get clients, but to me their execution always seems somewhat sloppy/rushed. The forehead on the snake looks too forward to me as well, almost like a pig snake, but I guess for the level of ball they will be playing, it works.

EDIT: I just noticed some things that back the sloppiness thing I mentioned.

1. on the secondary, the left side tail around the ball doesn't even have a green outline.

2. green slivers within the blue outline on the wordmark (kind of a pet peeve of mine) and for some reason there are more slivers on the wordmark than primary

3. the blue square around YUMA covers part of the E in the wordmark

4. this is nit-picky - but the chin of the snake covers part of the G in GHOSTS on the wordmark

5. the seams on the ball just disappear around the shadow rather than wrap around the ball

There are a lot of weird differences in the "Desert Ghosts" text in the primary and wordmark. Look at the tops of the letters "ESE" in "Desert," the tops of all the letters in "Ghosts," and the bottom of the last S. There are also little spots of green inside the G, and between the S-T-S. :wacko:

While not minor-league, the Wilmington Sharks of the summer-collegiate Coastal Plain League have unveiled new logos and uniforms. The new brand identity was designed by Dan Simon and the team at Studio Simon.

The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders have announced that August 8, 2014 will be "What If? Night" at PNC Field. The team will take the field sporting the uniforms of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Trolley Frogs, one of the finalist identities that lost out to RailRiders when the franchise rebranded from the Red Barons moniker.

That Wilmington primary is one of the friendliest sharks I have seen, but that's not a bad thing. I like the driftwood feel given to the area around the word Wilmington. The W cap logo is the best in this set.

The Wilmington Sharks reminds me of my local independent league team, the Camden Riversharks. Same team name and pretty much the same colors.
