Devil Rays Alternate Logo
The Tampa Bay Devil Rays have had an interesting history with their alternate logos. The team has gone through several changes in design and colors over the years, each one offering a unique look to represent the franchise. From classic designs featuring devil rays swimming around a baseball diamond to more modern takes on traditional symbols like stars and stripes, there is something for everyone when it comes to these alternate logos.
The first logo used by the Devil Rays was introduced in 1998 when they were established as an expansion team of Major League Baseball’s American League East division. This logo featured two devil rays swimming around a blue baseball diamond with navy blue lettering spelling out “Tampa Bay” above them and white lightning bolts surrounding them below. In 2004, this original design was replaced by another that featured three different color palettes—blue & green for home games; red & black for away games; yellow & orange for special occasions—and updated typography of “DEVIL RAYS” written across all four corners of the diamond-shaped field within which two silver-gray devils swim against waves made up of stars and stripes reminiscent of Old Glory herself!
In 2008 yet another change came about: bright yellow became part primary color (replacing both green/yellow) while navy remained secondary along with new bolder typeface reading simply ‘RAYS.' This version also included additional elements such as sunrays radiating outward from behind the home plate area where dark teal outlined numbers representing player positions could be seen inside circles at each baseline intersection point making up what would become known affectionately among fans as "the halo". Finally, after much debate among front office executives regarding whether or not keeping the current identity intact should take precedence over creating something fresh yet still recognizable enough so people knew who they were cheering on game day – the decision went back full circle returning us once again back into familiar territory but slightly tweaked so now we have iconic ray silhouette done entirely in lightening bolt patterned gradient blues hovering above words TAMP BAY DEVIL RAYS set atop circular background composed solely out deep oceanic shades giving whole thing unified look sure make any fan proud wear proudly come game day!
Overall, no matter what iteration you prefer or how many times it has changed throughout its existence - one thing remains clear: Tampa Bay's devotion and passion towards their beloved ball club never waver even if sometimes looks do!
