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

Recommended Posts

It’s not the royal and gold per se that I associate with Seattle, but all those extra outlines. 

 

The Brewers never went in for extra outlines. Even when they put a gold-outlined logo against a gold cap.

Would have been easy to throw a blue outline around that logo, but that wasn’t the Brewers’ style. 

 

Seattle on the other hand, when they had the same colors, went in for extraneous outlines.

So this cap, much as I love it, looks a little Mariner-y to me because of that extra blue outline.  Blue letter with gold outline and blue external outline, just like that 1990s Mariners jersey.

Lids should have used a white exterior outline around that “M” instead of blue.  At least that would have some historical resonance with the Brewers’ historical design philosophy.

These are actually pretty awesome. Looks like the date of the games is around Easter. Perfect color scheme for the spring. Love the argyle sleeves. This is what's great about minor league ball.

I like the Vice look, but I don't like the cap logo since it's based off of their flawed alternate logo. That logo has the shrimp facing in the opposite direction, so then it no longer makes a J. I'm not a fan of the backwards J.

I see these are being worn twice. Will the pink cap be worn as well or is it just a fashion, additional money grab?

The Futures Collegiate Baseball League expansion franchise that has been granted to Westfield, Massachusetts has unveiled its identity. The team will be known as the Westfield Starfires.

The name is a nod to the fact that Barnes Air National Guard Base - located at Westfield's Barnes Municipal Airport - is home to the 104th Fighter Wing of the Massachusetts Air National Guard. From 1954 to 1957, members of the unit flew Lockheed F-94A jet aircraft, the first operational U.S. Air Force fighters to be equipped with afterburners, and precursor to the F-94C Starfire variant.

That wordmark is going to look hideous on its own.  Hope they have a version without the ludicrous perspective.
