Spring Training Sees Logo Change

The Spring Training uniforms are usually the most unique compared to regular season fits and that trend stayed the same. This feels like a time when the organization tries out new stuff, logos, color combos, etc. because if it bombs, it’s Spring Training and nobody actually cares.

The 2020 Spring Training uniforms feature a blue jersey as usual but get a big change to the aforementioned staggered ‘TX’ logo mentioned above. This logo features not only on the hat as it does with the home reds, but it also is the front logo on the jersey stitched on the left chest. The ‘TX’ logo actually looks better on the jersey than it does on the hats. The ST hats are blue with the ‘TX’ logo and a red bill, inverse of the regular season red jerseys. Once again though I think I’d like the ‘TX’ logo better if it were a ‘TR’ instead. The TX reminds me a little too much of a gas station souvenir you can buy in Tyler that looks almost like a team hat without violating trademark laws.

Grade: C+
