New logo earns national recognition

April 23, 2007 - Northwest League (NWL) - Spokane Indians News Release

The Spokane Indians have one of the best new logos in Minor League Baseball according to Baseball America, the baseball industry's leading publication.

Of the twelve new logos in Minor League Baseball this year, Baseball America, in their April 9-22 issue, recognized the four most outstanding logos, including Spokane's, as "The Best."

The Spokane Indians new logo, which was unveiled last November, was developed in conjunction with the Spokane Tribe, the team's tribal namesake. This is believed to be the first time that a professional sports team has worked in conjunction with a local tribe to create a team identity.

The Indians new logo features an eagle feather, one of the most revered symbols in the Spokane Indians Tribal culture. One version of the team's new logo is written in Salish, the Spokane Tribal language.

"We have received so much positive local feedback on the new logo, but it is nice to know that people in our industry also appreciate the new logo," said Indians President Andrew Billig.

The Spokane Indians will proudly wear their new uniforms and logo in action for the first time on Opening Night, Tuesday, June 19th at Avista Stadium. Season ticket and mini-plan packages are on sale now. Call the Indians office for more information at 535-2922 and Make it an Indians Summer!
