The Championship Baseball Association unveiled the league’s Hall of Fame logo Friday at a press conference at the league offices.
We sat down with the designer, Kyle Editsworth, to breakdown the logo.
GOLD – Gold is a precious metal that is associated with wealth, grandeur, and prosperity, as well as sparkle, glitz, and glamour. Gold is associated with courage, passion and wisdom. In this design, the color represents the best of the best in the CBA. An elite group of athletes.
BLACK – Black is associated with power, strength, authority, elegance, formality, and sophistication. The color black is scientifically the absence of color. While the CBA is made up of three leagues represented by three separate colors, the Hall of Fame’s black design unifies players from the three leagues into one.
STARS – The stars symbolize the presence of the players inducted into the CBA Hall of Fame. Their stardom as players elevate them into this elite group honored throughout time. There are three stars in the logo, one for each of the CBA’s leagues.
BATS – The inclusion of the crossed baseball bats at the bottom of the logo pay homage to the CBA logo which features the same cross of bats behind its shield.
The Hall of Fame is expected to be finished soon.
