A logo can truly make or break you. A good, creative logo can improve your brand, while a bad logo can cripple a company into mediocrity. The same is true in baseball. The best logos make a team more intriguing, while the worst give that team a sense of boringness. So, we decided to create a list ranking each teams logos.
30. Seattle Mariners
I have always hated this logo. It feels so crammed. The font of the “S” sucks and the compass is just a terrible touch. They tried their hand at creativity and failed miserably.
29. Houston Astros
This is one of the newest logos in the league and also one of the worst. The tacky “H” fits much better in a cartoon than on a cap. At least the team is good.
28. Tampa Bay Rays
This is another horrendous logo. The “T-B” combo doesn’t work in that font and it has no creativity. It doesn’t even look like they tried.
27. Cincinnati Reds
This is hands-down the most boring logo in the league. It’s just a white “C” with a spike at the end. I would say it gets points for legacy, but to be honest, it’s not even that iconic because the Reds suck.
26. Texas Rangers
This logo feels blocky. They tried to make it 3D, but it just messed with the color scheme and made more of a shadow than a side. Overall, it just feels botched.
25. Minnesota Twins
I will say, the color on this logo is actually not bad. But past that, it’s just the Reds logo with a “T” going through it. Boring.
24. Colorado Rockies
This logo isn’t so much bad as it is disappointing. I feel like they could do so much more with the mountains and the landscape, like they did on their spring training caps. That’s a step in the right direction, but for now the logo just a “C-R” in a boring font.
23. Kansas City Royals
Like the Rockies, this logo isn’t awful, but it could be so much more. Unlike the Rockies, they only have to do one thing: Put a crown on the K. For the love of God put a crown on the K!
22. San Diego Padres
The Padres most certainly have the least history of any team, making their logo not iconic at all, and instead just a white “S-D”. Not ugly, just lame.
21. New York Mets
Without the history behind this logo, the Mets would jump back 5 spots or so. But this is for sure one the league’s most iconic logos. The problem: it looks like a pile of orange peels.
