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

Recommended Posts

And it's official...the Louisville Bats are switching to red, white and blue.

Red, white and blue are traditional colors...for the REDBIRDS. Black and purple were the Bats' tradition, and they will be back in three years' time, I predict.

I like the logo and font on the new identity but the color scheme is a huge downgrade. I would like to see this in their old colors though.

While the primary and monogram are both improvements, uhh.....

I like it! All the new bats are great.

Are those bats dotting the "i"s in "Louisville"?

Monograms should never include the mascot's initials, though. Points off.

And how pathetic is it that teams are now introducing their flag-desecration unforms as part of the regular unveiling? Save it for a "special" announcement, boys. No need to foul the nest right away.

Yes, the bats are dotting the "I"s in Louisville.

The R/W/B is absolutely stupid, but the set itself is pretty solid. That road wordmark with the bats dotting the i's is awesome.

Another annoying thing, and I always hate when teams do this. The bat logo is wearing a navy cap with a red bull and a solid LB logo. Why in the world doesn't the team either have that exact hat as an option, or why is the logo wrong on their alternate logo?

Baseball stitching sleeve pipping FTW.

Red, white, and a dark purple would have been a nice compromose though...

This. It's a travesty they dumped purple.

I think someone beat me to it but I think Louisville's new set is good, I just wish it was still black & purple.

Longtime lurker, so go easy on me. Hopefully the pictures work.....The United Shore Professional Baseball League (all 3 teams at one ballpark) unveiled their logos yesterday. Can anyone else think of a team nickname being the Unicorns? Logos are pretty basic, although I do enjoy that the frog is catching a fly-ball.

I agree. I would love to see someone make a mock-up with their old colors.

EDIT: Someone made a mock-up with the roundel.

I'm not sure there's a need for the extra colours of grey and red.

That looks amazing and that proves that the color change wasn't necessary.

We have a winner. Amazing how a simple color change can perfect a logo.

Yeah, that's nice.

I think the purple text might be a little too dark against the black, but that's a minor quibble.

Isn't the frog's tongue a Nike logo?

That is one angry unicorn.

Actually, "Unicorns" was one of the names considered in 1946 when the Boston team in the Basketball Association of America decided to go with "Celtics"
