Title: Minor League Team Names Thread - Post'em Here!
Post by: Chappy on September 17, 2008, 08:25:25 AM
This thread is being set up for you to list minor league team details in.  Feel free to list colors, logos, etc for the teams.  I'll list my junk as an example:

Pennsylvania Freedom (Philadelphia, PA)
AAA - Allentown Army
AA - Erie Gems
A - Reading Railroad

A - Reading Railroad
Not only a clever name, but a nice allusion to the original nickname of the Pennsylvania franchise.

Hawai'i Kula Sox (Honolulu):
AAA - Hilo A'a
AA - North Shore (Pupukea) Kahunas
A - Maui (Kahului) Kapua

(Actual cities in parentheses, all three cities are in the OOTP 2k8 city database, so I assume/hope they're in 2k9.  I have all the colors, logos, and uniforms set (http://www.npblbaseball.com/forum/index.php?topic=2174.0), can provide on request.)

Here's mine...

As I couldn't find any decent logos for the "Peaks", I am changing around my minor leagues a bit....

AAA: Fort Collins Jackrabbits
AA: Grand Junction Blizzard
A: Estes Park Rangers

Attached are the logos.  I play with the Jackrabbits in my fictional league.  Thought I'd bring them into this world.

If anyone has any suggestions for the Force logo, please let me hear them.  That's the one that I am not hugely in favor of.

Yeah, I plan on using the old Penn Locos logo (or a version of it).

AAA Silver Spring Saints

Team or Jersey
(http://i221.photobucket.com/albums/dd265/holycow98/saintsjersey.png)

AA Germantown Generals
Cap Logo

A Aspen Hill Aces
Team & Cap Logo
(http://i221.photobucket.com/albums/dd265/holycow98/acescap.png)

I may make a 2nd Aces logo one with just the ace of spade and the crossed bats without the diamond in the background and use that one for the cap. Usually when I modify logos for one of my teams I'm actually looking at what it looks like in the game. With the above...I haven't had a chance to yet.

Okay, logos. If you're feeling ambitious, they could probably use some cleanup, but if not, these are good enough for now.

Do whatever you think necessary to make them fit the format.


Richmond Rebels:
* logo: crazy-looking guy with sword
* uniform shirt: gray away jersey with red piping, red undershirt
* hat: gray with red R
* hex: gray #cbcbcb; red #fb0101

Charlottesville Cavaliers
* logo: guy with feather in hat
* uniform shirt: home white jersey with purple pinstripes, purple undershirt
* hat: purple with orange C (this may be hideous; if so, make it a white C)
* hex: purple: #160a60; orange: #f92a0d

Fredericsburg Patriots
* logo: New England Pats logo (yeah, I'm going there)
* shirt: white with navy pinstripes, red undershirt
* hat: navy with gray F
* hex: navy #0d254c; red #c0001d; gray #d6d6d6

I believe our player pictures are zoomed in too far to see any text on the jerseys. If I'm wrong, away jerseys should get the city name on it (so Richmond), home jerseys the team nickname (so Patriots).

Thanks

Nice nod to the old Connecticut franchise.

That's what it is. At first I felt uncomfortable doing it, as if a hypothetical Connecticut Marines franchise still owned the rights to the name, Now I've decided that if the need arises, I'll just hand it over, and in the meantime keep the spirit alive. I thought about using the provision in the rules about being able to locate minors teams in an adjoining state, but since the state used to have a major-league team, it might not be permitted. Plus, the people of Connecticut might not put up with a "downgraded" team.

Title: note on abbreviations lettering
Post by: satchel on October 26, 2008, 07:43:43 PM
In baseball stats, when using abbreviated team names to identify player affiliations, one style is to use all caps (http://www.baseball-reference.com/leagues/NL_2008_t.shtml); another style is to use both uppercase and lowercase letters (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/statistics). I prefer including lowercase, so  that's how I presented my suggestions, but it's up to the league. The abbreviations would work fine as all caps.
