The Baltimore Orioles Single-A short season affiliate, the Aberdeen IronBirds, rolled out a new logo for their upcoming season. The team owned and operated by Cal Ripken and Bill Ripken issued a statement or their new look, which will officially be unveiled at the Baseball Winter Meetings on Monday December 3 in Nashville, Tennessee.
“This logo represents a new era of IronBirds baseball in Aberdeen,” said Cal Ripken, founder of Ripken Baseball. “We have a lot of exciting plans for 2013, while continuing to remain true to our core mission of creating memorable experiences in and around the game of baseball.”
I’m a fan. It’s a cool new look. I’ve never been to an IronBirds game, but I drive past mini-Camden Yards on occasion. Usually at a slow pace because of the terrible I-95 traffic. It seems like a really neat venue packed all summer with Ripken fans.
