Senators Alternate Logo
The Washington Senators, now known as the Minnesota Twins, have had a long and varied history with their alternate logos. The team first began using an alternate logo in 1961 when they became the Minnesota Twins after moving from Washington D.C., where they were originally known as the Senators. Since then, there have been several different versions of this logo over time to reflect changes in ownership and branding strategy for the team.
One of these notable designs was introduced in 1987 when Carl Pohlad purchased controlling interest in the franchise and wanted to update its look with a new color scheme featuring navy blue instead of red or white that had previously been used by other teams such as Chicago Cubs or New York Yankees at that time period. This design featured an interlocking “M” and “T” lettering on top of each other set against a navy-blue background which still remains popular among fans today even though it has not officially been used since the 1994 season due to another rebranding effort led by the current owner Jim Pohlad who opted go back original colors associated with club's roots during his father's era (1987-1994).
In addition more recent years, the organization has also experimented with adding secondary logos such 2015 "TC" mark which stands Twin Cities area of Minneapolis & St Paul but ultimately decided to revert to the classic design again because according to research conducted by focus groups consisting mostly of older generations felt strongly about having iconic interlocking letters remain a primary symbol for the franchise going forward into future. Overall, it is clear that despite some experimentation along the way organization still values tradition honoring the past while continuing to move ahead in modern times through various changes made its visual identity over years.
