The Tucson Padres (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) unveiled a logo today, combining a desert atmosphere with the old-time logo of parent team San Diego Padres.
The design comes from San Diego Padres Creative Services Department and incorporates the old-style Padres lettering from 1978-1984 with the current Padres colors. The logo has a Tucson feel with the artistic addition of the cactus and mountain, synonymous with the Old Pueblo.
“I’m thrilled with our new logo and hope the fans feel the same way,” said Tucson Padres VP & General Manager Mike Feder. “It was essential that it came across with a local look but the addition of the nostalgic Padres lettering really capped it off. We want to thank the San Diego Padres for their tremendous creativity and initiative.”
The T-Pods also made their new website, TucsonPadres.com, available to the public. It will let fans get even closer to their favorite new team with breaking news, scores, promotional schedules, an online shop and video highlights. A great number of website additions will take place over the next few months. A team Facebook page is now public as well.
