The Rome Braves unveiled a new alternate logo today. The logo features a Roman soldier's helmet on a baseball with the letter "R" on the front. The helmet was used by the military of ancient Rome from 753 BC - AD 476 and pays tribute to the name of our hometown of Rome, GA with a red, blue, and gray color scheme.
"We are excited and honored to unveil our alternate logo today," say Rome Braves General Manager Michael Dunn. "This will give a fun and unique look to our team." The color combination adds to the white, gray, and red jerseys the team currently wears. The logo was designed by Chris Henwood.
A large selection of merchandise from hats to sweatshirts featuring the new logo are now available for the first time at the Tradin' Post located at State Mutual Stadium beginning today! Fans can also purchase online.
Rome opens the 2015 campaign on April 9 against Asheville. Season tickets as well as six and twelve pack ticket plans are now on sale. These make great holiday stocking stuffers.
