The Kansas City Royals and Major League Baseball unveiled the logo for the 2012 All-Star Game, to be held July 10 at Kauffman Stadium.
The official logo uses the Royals’ crown logo and colors of blues and metallic golds are incorporated into a theme of a family crest, accompanied by flags, and the type appears as if chiseled out of stone.
“I am thrilled that the Kansas City Royals and their fans will experience the 2012 All-Star Game, which will be a celebration of our national pastime in a wonderful baseball town,” said Bud Selig via press release. “There are bright days ahead for the Royals, and I believe that the 2012 Midsummer Classic will be an integral part of the renaissance of this great franchise.”
“The unveiling of this colorful logo brings us one step closer to the 2012 All-Star Game in Kauffman Stadium,” said Royals Chairman/Owner David Glass via press release. “As an organization we cannot thank the Commissioner enough for the opportunity to show the entire baseball world the true meaning of Midwestern hospitality. The next 11 months will be energizing for all of us involved as we prepare for a tremendous week for our organization and our community.”‘
This will be the third All-Star Game in Kansas City. The first was held in 1960 at the old Municipal Stadium and hosted by the Kansas City Athletics, while the second was held on July 24, 1973 at what was then known as Royals Stadium.
