The Trois-Rivières Aigles — the newest team in the independent Can-Am League— unveiled their logos and branding while also announcing the hiring of Pierre-Luc “Pete” Laforest as manager.
The club’s logos were designed by Trois-Rivières-based design agency Agence Absolu. The designs, which include the team’s principal mark as well as secondary logos and wordmarks, incorporate the red and black colors traditionally used by baseball teams in Trois-Rivières.
Former major leaguer Pierre-Luc “Pete” Laforest will head the team. A native of Gatineau, Quebec, Laforest spent parts of four seasons in the big leagues with Tampa Bay, San Diego and Philadelphia between 2003 and 2007. He also starred for the Can-Am League’s Quebec Capitales from 2009 to 2012, winning the league’s MVP award in 2009, serving as the team’s hitting coach in 2011 and 2012, and helping the team to four consecutive championships.
