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

Recommended Posts

Has anybody compiled all these new temporary baseball names and/or identities? Seems like some of them could make for a good inspiration folder (and a very valid new section under baseball on the mothership?).

Are they gonna sell copa 2020 hats or just roll them over to next year? I’ve been checking lids, but that’s just another store fanatics has ruined over the past year or two.

Going direct to the teams individual store might be the best option, and it helps a local business rather than a corporate entitiy.

Snap Decision: Beloit baseball considering a new name

August 5, 2020 - 00:15 AM

The Beloit Snappers have gone by their current nickname for a quarter-century, but with an impending move to a new ballpark in 2021, the team is considering an overhaul to their entire brand. The Snappers’ issued a call for ideas on their website and are soliciting input through August 18.

If you have a great nickname you should probably keep it.

Yes, but they're also about to move into a new stadium.  Which makes this pretty standard timing.

All they really need to do is update their logo/uniforms. The name has a good enough connection to the area and going with something else just feels like change for change sakes.

Are they changing their name because their fans are called Snapperheads?

 

(I’ll see myself out the door now.)

All they need to do is drop the gold from their color scheme and go navy/double green/yellow, then get some decent uniforms for once. I don't want to see the delightful Snappers get Brandiosed into being the StateLine RockRollers or some such trash.

If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.

I'm not going to lose any sleep over this since it's a minor league team I seldom notice but I think it's a solid name and teams just changing names* is odd to me. I'd rather they have a presence that lasts.  Hopefully the Mud Hens don't move into a new stadium soon.

In my opinion, they'd be best served by keeping the name and securing the services - and talent - of Dan Simon, Todd Radom, or Joe Bosack for a new logo package.

As a former Beloit resident there's no need for a name change, Snappers works better than any other nickname. What has already been echoed a logo change is needed. Maybe emphasize the A's color way more with yellow and green?

Cop: I clocked you at 70.

Dice: I know, snapperhead, I would have hit 90 but you stopped me!

It'd be a shame to see a great name like Snappers go. Just an update to the team's logo package is all they need. 

 

Also, how odd is it that Beloit still has a team?

The Worcester Red Sox—WooSox to friends—unveiled the on-field threads they’ll wear in their debut season next year, including nine jerseys and seven caps. The nine jerseys include three whites, three blues, two reds, and one gray, featuring the city’s name in a traditional Red Sox font, the team name in their own WooSox script, and the team’s heart-shaped W. The caps, in various permutations of red and navy, feature the Red Sox font W, the heart-shaped WooSox W, and, because the iconic yellow smiley face was born in Worcester, one with the team’s bat-swinging smiley face logo. (See the explanation for that here.)

 

Emphasis mine.  This is absurd.  It's fine for MiLB teams to have fun with their uniforms and have a few alts and special one-offs, but 9 jerseys and 7 caps is ridiculous by any measure.  The uniforms don't even go together, with some with their Woo Sox brush-ish script, and some in the Tuscon-ish font.  Just a joke.
