This video popped up on my YouTube feed yesterday. (Thanks, YouTube, for stalking my viewing history to offer up this suggestion…) While the video is a tad lengthy, it’s also quite fascinating. It provides a history of logos of MLB teams, and even takes into account location and team name changes — for example, how the 1960s Washington Senators became the Texas Rangers, or how the Brooklyn Superbas eventually evolved into the present-day Los Angeles Dodgers.
Some of these logos I don’t think I’ve ever seen before. Others I did remember, and they made me feel a bit nostalgic. Sports evolution, every aspect of it, is an interesting phenomenon.
