Senators Wordmark Logo
The Washington Senators (Twins) have a long and storied history with their wordmark logo. The original Senators logo was introduced in 1961, when the team moved to Minnesota from Washington D.C., and featured an “S” inside of a circle, representing the state of Minnesota as well as the team name. This design remained largely unchanged until 1972 when it was replaced by an updated version featuring two interlocking “W”s for Washington and two interlocking stars to represent both states that had teams in Major League Baseball at that time—Minnesota and Texas.
In 1987, the Twins unveiled another new wordmark logo which featured cursive lettering spelling out "Twins" surrounded by five stars representing each state within Major League Baseball at that time—Minnesota, Texas, California, New York, and Illinois. This design would remain unchanged until 2005 when they changed it yet again to its current incarnation: cursive lettering spelling out "TWINS" above a red starburst background with three white stars on top symbolizing baseball's return after being absent from Minneapolis since 1971.
Overall, over its sixty-year history, The Twins' wordmark has gone through several iterations but always kept true to its identity as one of America's most beloved franchises while staying modern enough for today's fans to enjoy watching them play ball!
