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

Recommended Posts

Frontier League announced their schedule today. Notably missing is the Traverse City Beach Bums and the Normal Cornbelters. 

 

The Beach Bums, along with their stadium, were sold to a group led by the Midwest League West Michigan Whitecaps and will play, under a new team name, in the Northwoods League next season. Here's the statement from the Beach Bums: https://traversecitybeachbums.com

 

According to this article, the Cornbelters might be moving to the collegiate league level, but no official statement yet from the Cornbelters organization. https://ballparkdigest.com/2018/09/27/normal-cornbelters-no-decision-on-2019-league/

 

I'm very upset that the Cornbelters are leaving the FL. They were my second favorite team in the league.

Accidentally labeled Whitecaps as a member of Northwoods League

Looked up Traverse City to see what they are known for and what would make a good new team name, and saw cherries mentioned in the summary paragraph. If this was Brandiose, we all know it would be the Fightin' Cherries.

Well fun fact, Traverse City gets a lot of tourists and that's why they were named the Beach Bums. If I were the new owners, I would keep the Beach Bums name, but get new logos.

Makes sense. Their old logos seem very similar to the old Daytona Cubs or Asheville Tourists logos.

Or Cherry Pickers! haha 

 

A cherry name could lead to an interesting reddish black color.  *dreams*

Just a reminder that this Saturday, the 27th, the Rocket City Trash Pandas logo and some merch will be unveiled.

My parents and my brother all live in Traverse City...something with cherries is appropriate, along with anything related to lakes. (Lots of water and boats there.)

I took from the article that the logos aren’t legit.

He said what he is most worried about fans buying the gear then being disappointed that it looks nothing like the official merchandise.

If you watch the video, the examples shown are literally Rocket Raccoon from GOTG movies on generic hat/shirt mock-ups. Not even close to being legit.

Interesting news coming out of Nashville. Sounds talking about a "remaster" of their branding.

Please just let it be a recoloring of the logos?

Or at the very least the current logo in a roundel like the Rangers. Nashville already has a solid brand

I hope the Sounds aren’t doing too much...they just rebranded a couple of years ago.  It’s not like they used A’s colors before and they want to change.

A recoloring of the logos would make sense.  They wore colors very similar to the Rangers throughout the 80s and 90s.

Let's hope this "remaster" doesn't meant much more than that.
