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

Recommended Posts

The split color word mark on the road jersey makes it seem like they literally couldn't decide if they wanted to be red or black. Red lettering carries over from the home, but could leave a black cap feeling out of place. The sock and undershirt pairings are also odd, but perhaps that'll be different on the field.

We changed again huh. When I was on the grounds crew the 1st 2 years, we were Giants which made sense since everyone is a Giants or Dogders fan here w a few A's. We should be the Tacos full time. It fits our area and everyone loves that gear.

Yeah the bear looks like it's been slashed

The logo looks like when I'm designing logos and I don't like it, I slash it out. I can't believe that was the best that Brandiose came up with...

Well, I know the Grizzlies are the Orlando Predators of MiLB in that slash marks are kinda their thing...but the execution should have been far better.  Instead, we see an injured version of your mascot and nigh illegible jersey scripts.  This has potential, but should have been better thought out

This is their fifth identity they have taken (not counting the Tacos or what ifs) since the team began in 1998. Seems a bit much.

 

These minor league clubs need to stop trying to match their parent clubs (whether in colors or uniforms). When they keep changing affiliates, they keep changing their identity.

I wouldn't call this change "trying to match the Grizzlies parent club".  if anything this is a new design, trying to separate itself from the former Giants esque scheme (a former affiliate) that had some dashes of Astros in there.

I still prefer this look ...

Fun fact: that design/branding was *also* done by Brandiose (although they were still going by Plan B at that time).

 

I agree though, in terms of concept and connection to the region, the Craftsman/Art Decco look is the best they've ever had... although the grizzly rendering hasn't aged particularly well.

Is nobody going to bring up the red pants?

Super thick lines with a static, angry, animal forced with bear claw marks. Should have been executed better. I like Brandiose's work but the entire identity is underwhelming.

The uniforms and wordmark are garbage but I like the slashing bear logo, and overall the logo package is pretty good.

I was talking in general (though I read from the main page that the red was a nod to the Nationals... which sounds like a reach IMO).

Say hello to the Traverse City Pit Spitters:

8-PitSpitters_Logos-700x394.jpg


I'm starting to realize pretty much every team that Brandiose rebrands gets a name that sounds like it was translated from an unlicensed Japanese video game from the 8-bit era... Baseball Stars and the like.

Now I kind of actually wanna see their take on the American Dreams and the Lovely Ladies. 😁

The only issue with the new Fresno set is that they could’ve toned down the slashes  on everything but the word mark still manages to be legible. Other than that, this shows that the Brandiose style still works when working on a more traditional team name.

 

And even if you don’t care for the team name Pit Spitters, that Michigan emblem is one of the most creative logos I’ve ever seen, especially the leaves forming the UP.

I couldn’t disagree more about the Fresno set. It reminds me of those trashy bootleg California Republic snapbacks you can buy at the liquor store in seedy neighborhoods.
