    I saw that today. They also changed their name back to the Chiefs from the SkyChiefs and changed color schemes to more closely resemble the parent team, the Blue Jays. Not a bad logo. I've seen worse.

    They already changed the color scheme one or two years ago to resemble the Blue Jays colors. I think the change happened one year after the Blue Jays changed their colors. I didn't know about the name or logo change. I used to go to quite a few SkyChiefs games when I lived in Ithaca. Now that I'm living in Geneseo I'll probably be going to more Rochester Red Wings games (this geography is probably meaningless unless you live in upstate NY).

    Here's an original for you:

    Scranton/Wilkes-Barre will no longer be known as the Red Barons (harkening back to the days of the Scranton Red Sox & Wilkes-Barre Coal Barons), but will now be known as the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.

    Here's the new logo:

    If I were a Yankee fan, which I am not, I would buy the hat. It actually is a nice hat. However, the article that I read stated that the team was going to keep the SWB logo on the hats that it has traditionally used but design it more like the NY logo. Should be interesting to see how that turns out. But, I do agree with you, YBF, it is a nice looking hat.

    Minor League Logos

    Okay, everyone, here's headwear lesson #1:

    It's a cap, not a hat.

    A hat has a brim. A cap has a visor.

    It's New Era CAP Company, not New Era HAT Company (New Era is the on-field cap provider for every major and minor league team).

    Our grandfathers wore hats. We wear caps!

    As most of you know, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs are a AAA team that will begin play in 2008 when the Ottawa Lynx (Phillies affiliate) relocate to Allentown, PA. Today they unveiled their logo.

    At least they got creative and made the corn into a bat.
    A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

    I really don't get the team name at all. IronPigs? Are people running out of ideas this fast these days? I know how and why they named the team that, but it still doesn't roll off the tongue. As for the logo, are you kidding me?

    Have you ever noticed that the Minor League teams have all the dumb team names/logos? Kinda obvious but....

    Ever noticed that the names (ex: Biscuits) sounds more like kid's Little League team names?
    Probably because most of them sorta are kids. I actually think that my League's Tee ball and Machine pitch levels have started using the Minor league team names

    I dare you to bunt on me. Seriously. Do it. You'll be out faster than you can swing the bat

    As far as I know, little league teams are mainly named after big league clubs.

    The Biscuits may be a childish name, but it sells. And that's what counts.

    Yeah it's funny. Personally, we had always been majors but I saw a teeballer playing in a biscuit's shirt. I had always been on the Cardinals, Rockies, and Giants

    Whether that was a rant or just a correction, it had me laughing. You sound like me. I'm in the military and we call them either Patrol Caps or Soft Caps. When someone calls it a hat, I always feel like I have to correct them, just because I'm anal retentive like that. It's kind of like the "this is my rifle, this is my gun" line in Full Metal Jacket.

    The team represents the Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton area of Pennsylvania. Bethlehem at one time had a huge steel mill (Bethlehem Steel). For those who don't know, "Iron Pigs" is supposed to be a reference to pig iron that was once produced in mass quantities in the Bethlehem area.

    However, I do agree-I think they could have come up with a better name-and that logo is just plain UGLY!
