Rockies Alternate Logo
The Colorado Rockies have a long and storied history with their alternate logo. The first alternate logo was unveiled in 1994 when the team entered Major League Baseball as an expansion franchise. This original design featured a purple mountain range against an orange sky, along with the team's name written in white lettering across the bottom of the image. This logo quickly became popular among fans and is still used today on merchandise such as hats and t-shirts.
In 2002, after eight seasons of using their original design, the Rockies introduced a new alternate logo featuring two crossed baseball bats set against a black background with red accents around them to create an 'X'. This symbolized both strength and unity within their organization while also representing how they were determined to become one of MLB's top teams despite being relatively new to professional baseball at that time.
Finally, in 2016, yet another redesign was released which showed three mountains standing tall behind home plate - this time without any other elements like text or color added into it for extra emphasis on just how beautiful Colorado can be from afar! The current version has been met positively by fans who appreciate its simplicity but also representational qualities; showing off not only what makes up part of our great state’s landscape but also paying homage to those who work hard every day for success here at Coors Field!
