Beware the Mighty FLYING SQUIRRELS!

The AA affiliate of the San Francisco Giants have recently changed their name via a fan contest and are now going to be playing as the Richmond Flying Squirrels. Sure it’s not a¬†particularly¬†imposing sounding name, but this is baseball, are people really intimidated by the Rockies name? Or the Red Sox? Or Dodgers?

While they may not have a commanding name, the Flying Squirrels do have a totally kick-ass new logo on their side.

“We feel real good about what we came up with,” said Flying Squirrels vice president Todd Parnell. “It’s kid-friendly, but has a little bit of an edge to it. Today was important because it gave us an identity. A team without a logo is like a blind date, where you know the person’s name going in but don’t know what they look like.”
