I know this sounds incredibly weird, but last night I just noticed for the very first time the “T” in the St. Louis Cardinals logo. It’s something I guess I just glossed over in years past, but watching the World Series it finally clicked there was a T.
It must be a pattern, because the exact same thing happened with the Milwaukee Brewers logo. Up until a few years ago, I had no idea that the glove was actually in the shape of an “M” and a “B”.
At first glance, it just looks like a glove, but upon a further investigation, you’ll see the outline of an M and B forming a glove. Aside from the old Blue Jays logo, this is one of my favourite baseball logos of all time. It’s simple, and yet brilliant at the same time.
Upon declaring how unobservant I was about the St. Louis Cardinals logo, folks on Twitter asked if I could see the outline of the letters in the Montreal Expos logo. I just always assumed it was “elb”.
It turns out the there is an “e” and a “b” that stands for “Expos Baseball”, but I never actually noticed the logo in its entirety is in the shape of an “M” standing for of course, Montreal.
Call me unobservant, but it’s funny how somebody can go decades without noticing these little intricacies in baseball logos, and then suddenly picking up on something. Must be a left brain/right brain thing.
On this day 19 years ago, Roberto Alomar hits arguably the biggest home run in Blue Jays franchise history. His home run off Dennis Eckersley helped tie the game at 6-6, and subsequently the Blue Jays went on to win Game 4 of the ALCS.
The Blue Jays would go on to win the ALCS over the Oakland Athletics, and take the World Series trophy over the Atlanta Braves.
People say that Joe Carter’s home run was the biggest home run in franchise history, but without Robbie’s home run off Dennis Eckersley, the Blue Jays might not have gotten there in the first place.
