Well, it was a pretty predictable day yesterday, as almost everything went according to form. The only news of the day was the No. 8 seed, the Durham Bulls, losing to the No. 9 seed, the Grand Prairie Air Hogs. The Bulls is a classic logo that couldn't be forgotten here, but it's not going to win this thing 20 years after Kevin Costner made it popular. So here's a look at the first bracket completed through the first round.So here's a look at the first bracket completed through the first round.
As many of you know, I eliminated the Fresno Grizzlies because I determined that its logo was too similar to that of the Yakima Bears. In retrospect, I should have had a play-in game, but it's too late for that now. Given the response I've received every time I've lifted a finger in this contest, I wasn't surprised when this e-mail came into my box late yesterday afternoon.Mr. Rovell,
When your Minor League Baseball Logo Contest was announced on Friday, the news that the Fresno Grizzlies logo had been slotted as a #7 seed was unquestionably disappointing to the Grizzlies, their fans, and the Central Valley baseball community. However we were determined to become the Cinderella story of this tournament and looked forward to proving that we were snubbed by the seeding committee.Page 1 of 3 | Next Page
