Erie SeaWolves Unveil New Logos

Written By:  •  Saturday, November 3, 2012

The Erie SeaWolves, Double-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers and a member of the Eastern League, unveiled their new logo set yesterday at a press conference in Erie, Pa.

A much needed upgrade over their previous set, the new logos continue the SeaWolves “Pirate Wolf” theme but in a much more modern and clean way.

Comparing the old and the new Erie SeaWolves logos

“We are proud to start a new chapter in SeaWolves history… Our new logos, colors and uniforms will enhance the ballpark experience and give fans a new reason to cheer. We’re really excited to share our new look with the fans of Erie.” – SeaWolves Team President Greg Coleman

The whole package, new primary on the right and alterate logos on the left

The new logo set was designed by Studio Simon, a design studio responsible for a large amount of solid Minor League Baseball identities including two other Tigers affiliates – the Toledo MudHens and Connecticut Tigers.

“Studio Simon did a tremendous job creating a new look that fans and players will wear with pride,” added Coleman.

Erie SeaWolves new uniforms for 2013

Erie will wear three in-game uniforms in 2013, a white home, road grey, and a red alternate.  Accompanying these three jerseys are two caps.

New to the identity is an alternate logo paying tribute to Erie’s role in the War of 1812 – a flag with a red ‘E’ on it flying from a baseball bat.  Also a nod to Erie’s nickname “Flag City”.

    I think it looks great and is a huge upgrade. I am confused about the handles and the bats, whats going on there, and why dont the handles line up with the bats? I looks like there are wavy bats coming out of sword handles.

      The logo is from a t-shirt so it’s a little wavy… to get a better idea of the primary logo on a flat surface check out the photo of all the logos together on those white boards.
