The Rocky Mountain Vibes (Rookie; Pioneer League) will debut at Colorado Springs’ Security Service Field next summer, as branding for the club was announced Monday.
“We were truly inspired by all of the submissions that we received, and we’re thrilled to bring the Rocky Mountain Vibes brand to life!,” said President and General Manager Chris Phillips. “We are looking forward to the 2019 season and beyond and making Vibes Baseball an integral part of the Colorado Springs community.”
The Vibes will be the Rookie-Advanced affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers in the Pioneer League. Their 2019 season will begin on June 14 against the Orem Owlz, with their first home game in Colorado Springs on June 21 against the Grand Junction Rockies. There will be 76 games with 38 home games in the 2019 season, with the final regular-season game coming at home on Sept. 7 against the GJ Rockies.
The team colors of the Vibes are familiar to Coloradans as they are inspired by the state flag: rubine red, navy, gold, sky blue, and tan. The primary logo features the team name “Vibes” in a fiery font resting on a marshmallow roasting stick. The other logos pull inspiration from the same fiery font and marshmallow theme. The flaming “CS” logo features a marshmallow with a bite taken out to form “C” on a roasting stick with the “S” on fire. Another logo features the Colorado “C” on a flaming marshmallow, while the final logo features a vibing mallow with sunglasses, a graham cracker vest, sunglasses, hiking boots, and flaming hair, while flashing the new Vibes “V” with his right hand.
The Vibes are the former Helena Brewers, who have relocated to Colorado Springs to take the place of the Sky Sox (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) at Security Service Field. The Sky Sox moved to San Antonio to replace the Missions (Class AA; Texas League) as they shift to a new ballpark in Amarillo. This is all part of a series of franchise relocations by the Elmore Sports Group, the winner of our 2018 Organization of the Year Award.
