    Well, the original logo was Pete Gray, but I see what you were going for...

    Thanks,

    Swing Coach,

    There have been times when coaching some of the younger players, I have felt I probably gave them too much information too soon. From the looks on their faces, as they try to put it all together in their mind, they were probably thinking something like the attachment.

    Good luck with your swing clinics.

    Well, did you find a logo? Seemed like some of the ones others submitted could work pretty well. The overlapping images might work but you probably have a more effective logo if you convert each frame to line art, in a simplification process -- then overlapping. Photoshop filter "Rubber Stamp" or "Posterize Edges" works pretty well on a picture that has plenty of contrast.

    Anyway, thought you might like to examine the attached -- this is a sketch for a poster concept Ive been working on to show a couple of things:how a lot of things seem to happen at once in the baseball swing and how the elite swing is a blend of "art" and "science". Not really the proper thing for a logo per se -- more of static graphic interpretation. I'm trying to account for the major forces exerted during the running start swing. Feel free to indicate other forces that should be included.
    Okay, are those knuckles aligned correctly?

    It is not overly masculine, is it? , but no. I didn't have a photo or live model to work with during my lunch hour -- I visualized one of those androgynous "wooden, posable figures" artists use for figure study -- I reasoned, that way, it might appeal to a wider audience. (There are lots of daughters that play softball who want to improve). For more masculinity, just beef up the thighs, calves, square off the jaw, whathaveyou...

    It looks more like a guy needing to go to the restroom really bad.

    Not so much a logo -- more of a poster concept...

    My first idea was to use the first frame, and then changing the opacity on the others, stack them right on top to show the swing. That way, the crowd, bench, etc stays in one place. Turned into a cluster F though.

    Everyone's just gonna have to make up their own minds......
    I've looked into it, and I think it's possible the artist had Killebrew and some other hitters' pictures there to get ideas. Harmon saw his and assumed it was all about him. That design is so simple and common, that it could literally be 1000 different players.
