About: (Est. 1919, formerly Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees) “The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders is a professional minor league baseball team based in Moosic, Pennsylvania in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area. The team plays in Northern Division of International League and they are the Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees Major League Baseball club. The team plays at PNC Field (formerly Lackawanna County Stadium), their home since 1989.” (Source: Wikipedia).
Design by: Brandiose. (I’m starting to think the B in B-Side stands for Brandiose).
Ed.’s Notes: A locomotive porcupine? Yes, please! Alternate versions below (or after the jump).
Select quote: “The RailRiders moniker pays homage to the very first trolley system in America, one created right here in Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA). […] A porcupine conductor, the gritty critter that calls NEPA home, is at the centerpiece of the identity.”
About: “The Stockton Ports are a baseball team in Stockton, California. The Ports play in the Northern Division of the Class A - Advanced California League and are a Minor League affiliate of the Oakland Athletics.
Design by: Brandiose (again!).
Ed.’s Notes: This is an alternate logo, not a replacement logo to the Ports’ main logo. Confusing? Yes. Awesome? Yes. Alternates of the alternate below (or after the jump).
Select quote: “The Ports new logos honor Stockton’s heritage as the largest in-land port in California and the Asparagus Capital of the World. A new character, 5 O’clock Dock, is the centerpiece of the identity, brandishing his baseball tattoos and asparagus club. Navy, Shipyard Gray and Asparagus green make up the club’s new alternate colors. The Ports are the first professional sports team to use Asparagus green.”
About: (Est. 1967, previously Reading Phillies) “The Reading Fightin Phils are a minor league baseball team based in Reading, Pennsylvania, playing in the Eastern Division of the Eastern League. The Reading Fightin Phils were founded in 1967 and they are the Double-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies.”
Design by: Brandiose.
Ed.’s Notes: Plenty more images at both links below.
Select Quote:“The Fightins’ new name is highlighted by an ostrich logo that symbolizes the feisty bird that is now indigenous to Reading because of the Crazy Hot Dog Vendor. With its fists ready for battle, the new ostrich logo represents the fighting spirit of the franchise, both on and off the field. It will be the first time in the franchise’s history that the team will feature an identifiable mascot. The logo is also the first in professional sports to feature an ostrich as its mascot.”
Pensacola, Florida just got their own Minor League Baseball team — the Blue Wahoos. Unveiled in November 2011, the team identity was designed by Brandiose, and you can see the baseball cap version of the logo after the jump.
