Senators Primary Logo
The Washington Senators, now known as the Minnesota Twins, have had a long and storied history with their primary logo. The first iteration of the logo was created in 1901 when they were founded as one of eight original American League teams. It featured an eagle perched atop a baseball bat with stars around it to represent each team member’s home state. This design remained unchanged until 1960 when the team moved to Minnesota and became known as the Twins due to their two-state presence in both Washington D.C., and Minneapolis/St Paul, MN area.
In 1961, the new franchise adopted a brand new look for its primary logo which included an outline of two states side by side – representing both Washington Dc., and Minnesota - along with crossed bats at its center above three stars that represented each state’s major league baseball team (Washington Senators & Minneapolis Millers). This version would remain largely unchanged until 1987 when minor tweaks were made such as adding more detail within each star shape or changing colors from blue & white to red & gray respectively; however, none changed how recognizable this particular version was throughout Major League Baseball circles during that time period
Today's current rendition has been used since 2010 following another move back from DC after spending most of their existence in Minneapolis/St Paul area since moving there nearly 50 years prior. This modernized version still features two states side by side but is much more stylized compared to previous versions while also incorporating elements found on other logos associated with MLB franchises like “Minnie&Paul" or "TC" lettering which are often seen on hats worn by players today making it very distinguishable amongst all other teams within Major League Baseball landscape.
