In this post I talked about the new names the Gwinnett Braves were considering. Now they officially have a new name: The Gwinnett Strippers.
The name comes from a popular fish in Lake Lanier.
The logo looks sharp with a red, green and blue color scheme. They even have an alternate logo with a worm on a hook. That’s pretty funny.
The logo set looks on pair with most minor league offerings. The name is unique, but not super over the top. It maybe doesn’t draw the attention of some of the wackier names, but does a good job of not being to pedestrian.
That and it gets another super common and boring Braves name out of the Atlanta System.
Speaking of changing names from that of the parent club, we have the former Tampa Yankees. They selected a team name from the history book the Tampa Tarpons.
The logo looks like kind of a generic fish. Though Tarpons is a cool name. Also points for how the Yankees color scheme looks so good in the main logo. Complete with a pinstripe background.
The Hudson Valley Renegades changed appreances as well. They now have another new set of logos complete with a raccoon swing a bat.
I must admit I don’t thing they really needed a change. To me the logos look a bit smoother than the old one, but don’t really change the brand with a must have logo for a hat.
Though I do enjoy how they have a set up for their season 25 anniversary by showcasing the team colors throughout the years in a set of three logos. They look very well done and impressive.
Speaking of sharpening their image we have the Augusta Green Jackets. The golf themed moniker gets a sharp new upgrade. This was due a long time ago, but as they are set to get a new stadium it’s the perfect time to adopt a new logo.
The little duffer bee dons a silly little gold cap in a mostly dark green logo. Its silly fun and looks good to boot.
So far, I am pleased with this years first wave of rebrands from minor league baseball. Interested to see what else is in store.
