The Milwaukee Brewers originated in Seattle, Washington as the Seattle Pilots, the Pilots lasted only a year because of financial and stadium problems. The move to Milwaukee happened so quickly that equipment was on trucks and not sure where to go Seattle or Milwaukee. In addition the uniforms from Seattle were rapidly changed from Pilots to Brewers, however the colors had to stay the same. Bud Selig had planned on a change of the colors, but was unable to because of the timing. So to this day the Brewers color are blue and gold, but with a different shades of blue and gold.
The first and only Pilot’s logo was simple and plain. The first Milwaukee Brewer logo, since it was so abruptly created and design was not that bad of a beginning logo. The slugging Brewer logo lasted for seven years, till some would say their classic logo was created and designed. The lower case letter “b” and “m” forming a catcher’s mitt with a baseball in the center has great creativity and imagination. Logos can be a remembrance of time, uniforms and players. During this time key players such as Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, and Gorman Thomas brought the spotlight to the Brewers.
