Vancouver Canadians’ New Logo
It was only three years ago that I took in my first Canadians game, ever. It was then that I discovered that an afternoon out in the sun, surrounded by trees, facing the city and mountains and feasting on hot dogs and beer was pretty amazing. The fact that you can do all this for under $20 makes a day at Nat Bailey Stadium just that much more perfect.
Today the team launched a brand new logo for their upcoming season.
The new design takes its cues from “old time” baseball while combining with the colours and themes of the recently-revitalized Nat Bailey Stadium, the Canadians much-loved ballpark. The clean, contemporary font compliments the retro “C” graphic, while the stitching effect was a natural fit to create the baseball within the logo. [Canadians Baseball]
Last summer I arranged for my office to have the “executive suite” for an afternoon game in August. Since then I’ve been in the Canadians’ good books and have received news updates, a Christmas card signed by all the staff, and information about the 2008 season complete with a baseball card for one of the players. They’re an approachable, and community-driven organization and I’m pretty excited about the chance to head out to the prettiest little ballpark around – even if I’m not even the biggest baseball fan.
