Senators Primary Logo
The Washington Senators (Rangers) have had a long and storied history in Major League Baseball, with their primary logo changing several times over the years. The first logo was adopted when the team entered into MLB as an expansion franchise in 1961. This design featured a blue baseball outlined by red stitching, surrounded by white stars on either side of it to represent the United States flag and its founding principles.
In 1972, after 11 seasons with this original design, the Washington Senators changed their name to Texas Rangers and subsequently updated their primary logo for that season onward. This new symbol features two crossed bats behind a shield-shaped background containing five interlocking stars at its center - each representing one of Texas’s five major league teams: Houston Astros, San Antonio Missions/Brewers/Padres; Dallas Cowboys; Austin Spurs; and El Paso Diablos/Colt .45s/Astros). Additionally included within this emblem were two longhorns facing inward towards each other along with “Texas Rangers” written across them both in bold lettering – all set against an orange backdrop which further highlighted these elements while also paying homage to state pride throughout all parts of America's Lone Star State!
Today's version is still based on this same concept but has been slightly modified since then - most notably having added silver trimming around both sides of its shield shape as well as featuring more intricate details within those interlocked star designs at center stage! Furthermore, they now utilize multiple colors including navy blue & light gray alongside traditional white & orange hues so that viewers can easily distinguish between different aspects contained therein without any confusion or difficulty whatsoever making sure everyone knows exactly who they are rooting for come game time!
