All names through this point have been entered.

I'll use current names as defaults for the rest.  Might we see the reports tomorrow?

I've had my minor league colors since the start, so it's cool to see them finally in the league pages.  Great work!

Minor correction.  Hilo is currently the A's rather than the A'a.

Oh, that's what I thought it was supposed to be.   :-[

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

Proposed minor-league team abbreviations. (Major-league whole-state location names are listed to ease comparison between all names; none have been changed.)

Design parameters:
  • three-letter maximum (the game allows up to four, but this is non-traditional, and the use of a fourth letter rarely defeats replication problems)
  • unique abbreviations, with letters configured in a pattern which would not fit any other team's location (this was impossible in the case of Jackson and Jacksonville, and in a couple other instances)
  • abbreviation should be easily recognizable; it should echo of the pronunciation or appearance of key parts of the original name
  • use only the initials of the separate parts of a location which has a multiple-part name (sometimes this could not be done, for example with San Francisco and Santa Fe)
