Hamptons Professional Baseball Club

Hey everyone I just posted about a new independent professional baseball league in the "Sports in General" forum. I'll be posting the branding and logos here for all you guys. I'm proud to show off Hamptons Professional Baseball Club as the first announced franchise.

The HPBC has a truly unique branding concept and design. They are the first professional baseball club to not have a team 'nickname'. For example the Manchester United Football Club. www.HamptonsProBaseball.com

Thats the idea! We wanted something 'out of the box'. We know this concept has worked well elsewhere around the world in soccer (after all, soccer is the worlds most popular sport!) so we wanted to give it a try with a different sport, and in america. Additionally, the 'Hamptons' are known for its international population and 'worldly' people so we also thought it fit well with the community.

Hopefully a fan nickname's gonna grow organically though (like with these soccer clubs)

simpler crown, bigger letters, no gradients

In a nutshell.

This logo is already official, right? So too late to edit I'm guessing. In addition to what these guys said, look at all the empty baby blue space. You have enough elements in this logo to fill the space yet half the logo here is still empty baby blue space. It's okay for the bats or banner to extend beyond the shield's border. It would make use of the space better.

Yes it is official, but I think going in removing the gradients, enlarging letters and making things a bit more 'eye friendly' can't hurt, as the as the original design itself is kept.

I was thinking more of a "fan nickname" (like how Arsenal's the Gunners, Liverpool's the Reds, etc...) fans can call 'em the "Hammies" maybe?

Like you said, an organic fan nickname will probably about. Looking forward to that. I think the generic name allows for the club to be what the fans want it to be (if that makes sense), a closer connection to the team.
