Spring Training Equals Awesome Baseball T-shirts

Baseball Is Back!
 
Spring Training is underway, and the start of the baseball season is quickly approaching. It’s time to dust off those ball caps, and get ready to spend some time at the ballpark! As you get ready for popcorn, hotdogs and ice cold beer season, a wardrobe update is a necessity. Now that baseballs are flying and bats are swinging, you have got to get some awesome t-shirts to represent your baseball passion! Lucky for you, awesomesportslogos.com can have you in the softest, most stylish shirts on the market, and all with just a few clicks. Let’s take a look at a few of the awesome baseball t-shirts that should be added to your closet!
 
Boca Raton Cougars
 
 
 
This minor league baseball team is named after the ferocious animal called the cougar. The overpopulation of cougars is prevalent mostly in the upscale Boca Raton neighborhoods. You can find cougars in shopping areas during the day, but mostly they are nocturnal beasts working the bar and club scene stalking their prey. They are ferocious except when they are on our super funny Boca Raton sports t-shirt. That’s when ferocity turns into awesomeness. Grab your cougar hunting t-shirt today!
 
California Crazy Eights
 
 
 
Off the coast of the Golden State, on the Pacific Ocean floor, is an eight-legged creature that is truly fascinating. Most common is the California Two-Spot Octopus. In case you’re ever asked to identify a Two-Spot, just point out... well, never mind, no one will ask you. This octopus means business. Only two tentacles are occupied with a ball and a bat, and that means you better keep an eye on the other six! We're biased but we love this Octopus T-shirt
 
Idaho Taters
 
 
 
Many call Idaho the potato capital of the United States. In fact, the Idaho potato is the best-selling tater in the country, putting over 2.7 billion dollars back into the state’s economy. That’s a lot of taters! Speaking of that word, “taters” is a baseball term for home runs. “He has 23 taters on the year” or “That was a tater”. The Idaho Taters live up to their name, hitting more home runs than anyone else in their league. Who wouldn’t want to wear a mean looking potato on their chest?
 
Those are just a few of our many super-soft, awesome baseball tees. Be sure to check out the rest! Don’t want to get them all at once? We have a solution for that! Add them to your t-shirt of the month club rotation, and get a brand new tee each month. Wearing these tees will make you the center of all your game watching parties! Enjoy baseball season in style, and make all your friends jealous!

Sports Logo Review of the Florida Panthers

The Florida Panthers are one of the more obscure sports franchises, in my opinion. Hockey in Florida seems odd, but, then again, it also seems odd in Tampa Bay, a city that makes it work very well, and the same be can said on both accounts for the Southern California teams in Anaheim and Los Angeles. 

But, Miami? I'm not going to act like I'm an avid watcher of Panthers games on TV, but unless they are good, I can't imagine there is a ton of interest in that area for their local hockey squad. 

Florida's inaugural season came during the 1993-1994 campaign. Their first stars included former New York Rangers goalie, John Vanbiesbrouck. The "Beezer" resurrected his career and helped lead the Panthers to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1995-1996, before they were bested by the Colorado Avalanche. 
 
 

The Panthers were given their nickname after the endangered species, the Florida panther, which is endemic to the nearby Everglades region, according to the team's website. In 1992, Florida selected the Florida panther as the official state animal. Thus, the logo's significance and representation of the region is certainly way more than adequate.

The team's official color scheme is red, blue, gold, and white. Their current home jerseys are red, while the road jerseys are white. In that sense, I guess you might have to elevate red as the team's primary color, but the primary colors of the logo, itself, are gold and blue. 

Of the three non-white colors, the red is my least favorite in this mix. I really like the way the blue plays off the gold, which is not your typical metallic gold like Notre Dame, for instance, but more of a panther "fur" gold, if that even makes sense. 

I do like the red eyes that stare you down as the panther is leaping towards you. That adds an element of intimidation. 

As far as the actual graphic--the panther--I really like it. It doesn't necessarily fall into the "simple detail" category, because there is significant detail. The wrinkling of the fur and the various marks with the mammal's movement, along with the curling of the fingernails and the hair tips of the tail all add to the unique detail of the ferocious panther. 

In some cases, I prefer simplicity. In this case, don't ask me why, I like the detail. I think it might be because it all adds to intimidation factor. It seems like the panther is really jumping off the page to get you. It is almost like you feel the speed of the panther. 

Overall, I give this logo a B+.   

We have some other Florida sports logos that we give high marks to. 

While they may not be hockey logos, they certainly show the same creativity as the Panthers. 

 
 

This is a different kind of cat. This minor league baseball team is named after the ferocious animal called the cougar. The overpopulation of cougars is prevalent mostly in the upscale Boca Raton neighborhoods. You can find cougars in shopping areas during the day, but mostly they are nocturnal beasts working the bar and club scene stalking their prey.

 
 

The city of St. Joseph in Dade County Florida is known as the Kumquat Capital of the world. Each year 40,000 people descend on this area for the one-day Kumquat Festival. Who would have thought a kumquat would attract so many people? 

What is a kumquat besides a funny name? A kumquat is in the citrus family and looks like an orange, but it’s the size of an olive. We decided to take a cute looking fruit with a funny name and make it into an awesome baseball logo.

Kudos Florida, you have some Awesome Sports Logos!

Thanks as always for reading,
