Logical choice, given the love for bacon currently in the baseball world as well as the lover for alliteration among sports teams. The franchise name and logo were unveiled at a special event today at the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame in downtown Macon. The team will be owned by Steve DeLay and Jon Spoelstra.
“We’re thrilled with the initial response to baseball coming back to Macon,” DeLay said via press release. “The community has responded to our all-you-can-eat ticket packages, the corporate community is tremendously excited about our partnership opportunities, and now that we have formally announced the club along with a tasty brand and logo.”
The finalists: Macon Bacon, Macon Heat, Macon Hits, Macon Noise, and Macon Soul. The Bacon logo was created by Tony Canepa of Tony Canepa Design in Austin, TX.
The team unveiled uniforms and hats featuring bacon strips as numbers on the back of the home jerseys and a Bacon M secondary logo. Alternate uniforms feature a cardinal led top and pants and a jersey and socks made of bacon strips.
