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

Recommended Posts

Stop me if you've heard this story before. A group has managed to bring minor league baseball back to Ottawa for the 2015 season. The as of yet unnamed franchise will be playing in the Can-Am league and is looking for suggestions from the public for a team name. Ideas can be submitted to info@ottawaprobaseball.com. The creator of the winning name will receive a pair of season tickets along with "other great prizes that show off the new name". So if you've always wanted to name a franchise that will be around for a couple of years drop them a line. Remember the winning suggestion will likely need to be bilingual-friendly.

Didn't the last baseball team here fail so badly it never got onto the diamond?

I remember being something like this with the Voyageurs, who then disappeared from history.

The Rapidz set up shop in the Can-Am league after the Lynx left town. After one season they went bankrupt and were being run by the league. This was when they were rebranded as the Voyageurs. The new name never saw the field as the team suspended operations before the start of the '09 season. The stadium was also home to the Fat Cats from 2010-2012.

Rumor has it the A's farm club, the Sacramento RiverCats is shopping around opportunities to switch affiliations with the Fresno Grizzlies, the Giants AAA club.

Would love to see some mock ups of the Cats in Orange & Black, and Grizzlies in green and gold...

Regardless of affiliation, I'd like to see the Cats redo their logo set.

totally agree! Even if they stick with the A's, they'd sell more merch with green & gold. The whole logo is a little dated.

No way. The RiverCats have AWESOME colors. Burgundy, black, and sand is an awesome color combination and it's unique. They'd look like total ass in green and gold (hence the reason why they've never had those colors), and ditching the burgundy for orange would be a huge disappointment as well. I went to the RiverCats game tonight and noticed that they've made some changes recently that are a pretty big downgrade to their set (adding sleeves and the A's elephant patch to their home jerseys, going all BP style CoolBase, switching from their original primary logo to that weird RC cola style logo, ect).

This is the best the RiverCats have ever looked, and they should've never changed away from this look.

But with this cap logo.

I think someone with the Cats on the news said that nothing will change with the team with the exception of the players if they switch affiliations.

The Grizzlies probably would have to though, being they're black and orange. I remember when they first played in Fresno, they were purple and black, then for a few years they were something different(forgot what it was), before being the colors of the Giants.

From 2005 to 2007 this was their color pallete

Yes,that is an off center hat logo. Combined with that color, it was awful.

And yes, that is Matt Cain.

That looks terribly slapped together... which I suppose is the look they were going for.

It's really weak. It's ok to have the pullover but I think a better way to do this would've been to place a number on the front, reduce the curve and put the BISON on the opposite sleeve. Or! Just place the name and nothing else.

They're supposed to resemble 80s Blue Jays jerseys. No number on front.

It worked for the blue jays because their logo is actually good, that one looks so awkward and throws off any sort of balance in the jersey with the logo they have

It's not really a logo or uniform change, but I'm getting ready to go to the Toledo Mud Hens game tomorrow, in which they'll wear the Ghostbusters jerseys they revealed a couple months ago.

Yakima Valley Pippins unveiled their uniforms today. I don't know what's up with the people in the unveiling though.

The home jersey and green hat are beautiful.

Love the hats and home jersey, what's with the grey jersey+white pants and white jersey+grey pants? It looks just plain weird.

That woman's smile couldn't be more fake than if she ordered it directly from China.

Not trying to be mean, but maybe it was because of their waist sizes?

Either way, that was just for the shoot.
