"I ain't afraid to tell the world that it don't take school stuff to help a fella play ball."

-"Shoeless" Joe Jackson

I love this logo JT made me a few months back and I have not had a chance to share it. Thank you JT.

One of the most recognizable logos in sports, the Milwaukee Brewers yellow and blue mitt logo was introduced in Winter 1977 and adorned Brewers caps for the 16 greatest seasons in club history. The logo was selected among more than 2,000 entries from both professional and amateur designers in an open contest in October and November 1977. Tom Meindel, an Art History student at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, designed the logo and earned the $2,000 first prize. The logo combines the lower case letters "m" and "b", the club's initials, to form a baseball glove. boys in the blue and gold have not faired well of late as you will see by the article below.

"In what has become a streak of recycled plotlines, the Brewers lost their seventh straight game, 4-3, to the Nationals in front of 40,392 fans at Miller Park on Saturday."
