The Lowell Spinners Have a New Logo

Today’s Sports Logo Review takes us to Lowell Massachusetts, home of  the Lowell Spinners of the Single A New York Penn League.

The Spinners recently unveiled a new logo so lets take a look.

 

The name and logo have great history in this region, a history that many may not know. You may have never heard of Lowell but back in the 1800’s Lowell was a textile giant. Cotton was grown in the south and shipped to Lowell. At one point there were more cotton spindles in Lowell than anywhere else in the United States. That’s why this logo makes so much sense. Many of the plants are now historically preserved and turned into museums. I love the name Spinners.

Here’s what team owner Dave Heller had to say. "Our new logos better reflect exactly who we are," said team owner Dave Heller. "The old logos did not even mention the word 'Lowell.' We are proud not merely to be from Lowell but of Lowell; the canals that run through this great city are a big part of our DNA, and we are proud to put the Lowell name back on our logo, jerseys and caps. We also wanted to incorporate our affiliation with the Red Sox as well as the factories and mills that define Lowell. Like the Spinners, they are an integral part of Lowell's past, present and very bright future."

 Great explanation by Mr. Heller. The factories and mills are a nice touch to the logo and I also like the Red Sox formatted lettering. It’s a great way to tie in the parent MLB club without calling it the Lowell Red Sox which happened in the past with many big league teams.  One explanation left out is the Gator. As a guy that grew up in the Bay State, I can tell you, Alligators in Lowell, MA are few and far between.  A bit too chilly in the channels of Lowell but I don’t mind the Gator touch. In fact, the club has named it a Canaligator after the six miles of Lowell canals.

Great job Spinners. You have an awesome logo and you run a fine organization packing the house year after year. Well done Lowell!

At Awesome Sports Logos, we feature two Massachusetts baseball logos on our t-shirts.

The first is the Boston Accents

 

 

Baseball has such a rich tradition in Boston and Bostonians also have a distinctive Accent. You’ll certainly hear it if you ever take in a game at historic Fenway Park. We put the two together and created this tribute to the great baseball city of Boston.

Our other awesome t-shirt pays tribute to one of the best collegiate leagues in the country. Each summer, many of baseball’s top prospects descend upon Cape Cod. Just like the Majors, only wood bats are used in the Cape Cod League and the best part, there is no admission to the games. They pass around a hat in the stands and everything is paid for in donations. It’s a great league and a great way to see the stars of tomorrow. We love it so much that we came up with our own Cape Cod baseball logo, the Cape Cod Scrod.

 

What exactly is a Scrod? Now that is a great question. A Scrod is a Cod or Haddock used mainly in New England dishes. Cape Cod is know for it’s awesome fishing and this logo shows this fish swinging for the fences. Cape Cod is an amazing place and we’re so proud to have a t-shirt that represents the Cape.

You can get both of these closet favorites as part of our T-shirt of the Month Club. Free shipping, discounts and a smile on your face when you pick up your mail. Now that’s awesome!

Thanks as always for reading.
