One More Time With the Logos…
It has been my goal to do a post on all the new logo changes in the Minor Leagues this offseason, and sometimes I wonder if this is a task that is too much for just one man to handle. Yet, I soldier on, despite repeated inability to do this in a timely fashion.
Today, we visit the Yakima Bears of the Class A Short-Season Northwest League, who unveiled a brand-new "Team Identity System" just last month. From the press release:
"The goal of this project was to develop a new look that is classic and complements their current state in the community. The Bears are here for the long haul, and they want a look that reflects that commitment."
A quick click on this link will direct fans to a page that includes the press release, a photo gallery, a TV news report, and a fashion show video. That should be more than enough to satiate your admittedly voracious new logo appetites (or at least I hope it is, you non-commenting monsters).
If you are currently experiencing a strong sense of deja vu, it is probably due to this.
