And perhaps best of all...one game cap, one BP cap, one primary logo and two alternates. What a concept! I really do like this identity, very well done.

It also helps that in my five years of taking Spanish classes, "tortuga" was one of my favorite words to say. :P

I think it's a great logo package. Like The Mojo Maniac said, nice and simple, not eighteen logos.

Apparently, Daytonans (is that what you call them?) are complaining in droves, mainly crying that "it's not an American team name," etc. etc.

Reminds me of the backlash that the El Paso Chihuahuas got last year...an identity which I LOVED gets blasted by lots of people initially, but in the end, most of them get used to and appreciate it.

Love it. "Daytona Tortugas" came out of left field, but it rolls off the tongue very nicely.

The Rome Braves have a new alternate logo:

Personally, I can't unsee:

Here's what I assume to be an alternate cap:

I always called us DAYTONIANS, but I guess that was incorrect the whole time

Well I can't say I was expecting Tortugas at all, but I'll certainly take it wholeheartedly. The colors I love (maybe with bias as lime is my favorite color), though the dark green looks a little more blue on the uniform's wordmark. Probably the light blue outline playing tricks with me. And of course it's oceanic themed, which I love and it fits in well with other teams in the league (Hammerheads, Threshers, Manatees, Stone Crabs). Looks great. This was Studio Simon's work, correct?

The new Rome one is just silly for me. I could see that being used for Sunday games or batting practice if anything.

Are the Tortugas using light blue or gray/silver? Having trouble trying to figure what exact color that is...

Light blue. A clearer image from the mothership:

Also everyone keep your eyes peeled, South Bend's about to reveal their new logo set.

No swinging bear? What madness is this?

And I agree with Gothamite, two great ones in one day. I too like the SB logo, and this one avoided looking overly cartoonish. Well done.

Wow, that SB logo is definitely nice. And it's good to see a logo depicting baseball being played WITHOUT swinging a bat.

I like the primary, but feel like it could've been simplified some. Starting with the C and going outward, there are 8 round "layers"...

Echoing everyone on the SB logo, I love it. Anyone know the significance about the ivy in the main logo?
