Many new MILB logos introduced

Over the course of the past month there has been several new minor league baseball team logos introduced.  We have reviewed two of these changes in full detail; the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders and the Reading Fightin Phils.  However, besides these two local teams there has been many more changes that came about.

Without going into great detail let’s take a look at the changes.

Buffalo Bisons
AAA affiliate of Toronto Blue Jays
International League
Revised Logo Grade: C
Review: Bisons are switching affiliations from Mets to Blue Jays and needed to move away from any New York Mets identity. The logo is a play on one designed many years ago, however it seems much to simple of a design.

Hudson Valley Renegades
A affiliate of Tampa Bay Rays
New York – Penn League
Revised Logo Grade: B
Review: Very muted colors, but I think that was the look the Renegades were going for, trying to add an element of spookiness.

Eugene Emeralds
A affiliate of San Diego Padres
Northwest League
Revised Logo Grade: B+
Review: Move from sophisticated and bland to more of a character / icon. Teams are trying to identify more with their local market and featuring the Sasquatch surely does this. Too much “emerald” green distracts from the overall quality.

Aberdeen Ironbirds
A affiliate of Baltimore Orioles
New York – Penn League
Revised Logo Grade: B+
Review: Great update. Replacing cartoonish plane with a more fierce and intimidating version.

Some intriguing updates to minor league logos.  I am looking forward to seeing further revisions before the kick-off to the 2013 season.
