Can You Name These Baseball Teams From Just a Portion of the Logo?


Baseball logos are legendary—everyone recognizes them. Even the most clueless tourists know what a New York Yankees cap looks like. Any true fan can spot their own logo, but can you identify every single one? It'd be way too easy for us to just make a logo quiz. We've gotten together every logo from the MLB and cut out a tiny piece from each of them. That tiny portion is all you'll get to identify your favorite MLB teams. But, to help you along the way we've collected some killer baseball history trivia. Do you know your Red Sox from your White Sox? Do you know which teams are the all-time greats, and which are the legendary losers? Do you know what went down at Wrigley Field in 2003? If you do, then you might just hit a home run in our baseball logo test and make it to the big leagues.

Let us introduce you to the Listicle Liege, the Article Aficionado, the one and only Nathan. Since creating his first photo collage at the age of five with images clipped from his mom’s Chatelaine magazines (all of them), it’s been nearly impossible to stem this one’s tide of visual learning. Be it the annals of history or the latest celeb gossip, Nathan has probably researched it, likely already has a folder of relevant photos on his desktop, and definitely learned a lot of interesting facts to go with those images. Whereas most well-read adults have bookshelves full of classic literature, Nathan’s stacks are composed of National Geographic and TIME special editions and a curated section of first-grade readers (for inspiration). If you prefer picture books to wordy novels, listicles by Nathan are right up your alley.

The MLB Logo

While the Major League has been around since the 19th century and all member teams had logos, the MLB itself didn't have a logo until 1968. Although the design was based on several players, the figure is deliberately anonymous and could represent any ethnicity. Despite a long debate over authorship, Jerry Dior is now recognized as the sole creator of the current MLB logo, allegedly creating it in just one afternoon. Its design—a player flanked by two blocks of red and blue—has since been copied by other sports, including the National Basketball Association, golf's PGA Tour, and the American Hockey League. In particular, the NBA logo was deliberately mimicking the MLB to emphasize that they were both all-American sports.
