The Greeneville Astros (rookie; Appalachian League) updated the team’s logo and branding for the first time since entering the Appy League in 2004, matching the look of parent Houston Astros.
The new look, based on a blue and orange color scheme — the same colors that will be worn by the Houston Astros. — was unveiled at a public event last night held at Pioneer Park.
The new Astros identity features a full star logo with a block letter ‘G’ in the middle of the star. The Astros home caps will feature this logo on a solid blue cap while the road caps will be solid orange. Meanwhile, batting practice caps will have the club’s primary logo on a blue cap with an orange bill.
The Astros home uniforms will be white with blue lettering and orange piping. The road uniforms will feature an orange jersey with blue lettering and gray pants with blue piping. The club will also have a blue batting practice top with rainbow print down the side of the jersey.
In addition to their new identity, the Astros revealed that Tennessee Tex and Tennessee Tess will sport a new wardrobe to match the club’s new color scheme. Tex became the Astros first mascot during the club’s inaugural season in 2004 and was joined by his sister, Tess, in 2006.
