The Brewers gave their new logo some modern flourishes, connecting the “m” and “b” that form the baseball glove, changing the color from royal blue to navy blue and putting two seams on a now-centered baseball to give it a more authentic look. Club president of baseball operations Rick Schlesinger said the intent was to stay true to the nature of the original logo while bringing it forward to mesh with a rebranding of player uniforms as well.
“What we did is we took the classic ball-in-glove and made certain modest changes, modest enhancements we thought would elevate it,” Schlesinger said.

The development of the new logo began in November 1992 when the Brewers approached Major League Baseball Properties Design Services about creating a “new look” as the Brewers approached the 21st century. The finished product, which took the field for opening day 1994, incorporated the letters “m” and “b” over crossed baseball bats and a background representing a blue with gold trim baseball diamond.

The logo was selected among more than 2,000 entries from both professional and amateur designers in an open contest in November 1977.
