Created by Kendrick Kidd | https://dribbble.com/shots/18152054-Illustration
The history of baseball logo design can be traced back to the late 1800s when professional baseball leagues were first established in the United States. At that time, logos were not commonly used in the sport, and teams typically identified themselves through their uniforms and team colors.
However, as the popularity of baseball grew, teams began to develop distinctive logos to help them stand out and build brand recognition. The early logos were often simple designs featuring the team name or initials and were typically embroidered onto the team's uniforms.
In the 1980s and 90s, baseball logos continued to evolve, with many teams adopting more streamlined and simplified designs. One trend that emerged during this period was the use of animal mascots, such as the Baltimore Orioles' cartoon bird and the Milwaukee Brewers' racing sausages.
