The MLB’s logo history is quite extensive going back to the beginning years of 1903 and before. In the MLB’s rich history of logos they have produced and used many MLB primary logos, MLB alternate logos and MLB wordmark logos.
The Major League Baseball logo was designed by Jerry Dior in 1968 and was included on all on-field uniforms of Major League Baseball (MLB) employees beginning in the 1969 season. According to Dior, the logo was created in a single afternoon. Contrary to popular belief, the silhouette was not modeled on Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew, or any specific player but was drawn with reference to photographs of several players. The silhouette was chosen specifically because of its ambiguity: the batter could be right- or left-handed and of any ethnic background.
