Pittsburgh Pirates Looking to Revise Logo For 2014 Season


The Pittsburgh Pirates have one of the most traditional logos in Major League Baseball, but that could all change soon. Pittsburgh finally seems to be turning the corner and working their way out of the NL Central basement and a new-look could accompany the team as they return to relevance.

The Pirates are looking to alter their logo for the 2014 season and discussions will begin next week.

Pittsburgh will invite a limited number of season ticket holders to focus groups so they can receive feedback and input from the fans while they look to potentially change the logo for 2014.

The primary logo has been a gold “P” on the center of their cap and the tradition has stuck with the Pirates since their early years. How could the organization alter the logo to make it modern and fresh while sticking with the team’s tradition?

Personally, I would like to see the Pirates go back to their glory days for some inspiration. A logo like this would bring back the good memories for Pirates fans young — well, not too young — and old:

    I’d like to see the Pirates front office worry more about a .500 season or even a playoff run than a new logo or uniforms. I mean, come on! I’m fortunate to be able to remember a winning season.

      I don’t care about logo changes either and don’t think this one matters at all, but the Pirates are getting better. It’s kind of sad that I’ve never seen the Pirates make the playoffs during my existence (yes, I’m a Pirates fan as well), but I highly doubt Huntington care about the logo change either. At least, I hope he didn’t devote much time to it.
