The Quad Cities River Bandits unveiled their new logos today, and I’m pleased to report that they didn’t “Swing” and miss.
The team’s new primary logo is very similar to the popular one it replaces, with the only change being the addition of an arch to the bridge. Now, instead of a generic bridge, it looks more like the Centennial Bridge, which crosses the Mississippi River near Modern Woodmen Park.
The team also unveiled three new alternate logos. My personal favorite of the three is this one, a bandana-clad baseball splashing into the Mississippi River:
I also like this one, which shows mascot Rascal batting. It will be on the team’s batting practice caps.
The third alternate logo is a raccoon hand catching a baseball.
The team also created a new logo for the amusements that it began adding to Modern Woodmen Park this year. It depicts Rascal carrying a baseball while riding in a gondola of the Ferris wheel that will be installed behind the ballpark next spring.
So, what do you think of the new logos? Leave a comment below to let me know.
