The Fort Wayne … TinCaps?

They’re no longer the Fort Wayne Wizards, folks. The Midwest League baseball franchise has changed nickname to coincide with moving into a new downtown ballpark next season.

The new nickname? The TinCaps. No, really, the TinCaps.

The logo actually looks fairly cool. It’s an apple with a face, wearing a pot, I guess. The nickname has something to do with Johnny Appleseed regularly wearing a tin cooking pot upon his head.

OK, that begs this obvious question. Is it a good logo and nickname when you have to explain it to everyone?

Here’s a link to seeing the new TinCaps logo:

After looking at the logo, the term PotHeads leaps to mind. Not good, unless you are into the whole brevity thing.

Second-worst logo and name in Minor League Baseball.

This is so stupid…A logo isn’t good if you have to explain it..I thought haven’t a team with the name Komets with a K instead of a C is bad enough but now Tincaps, what the hell is Fort wayne doing? they are truly the dumbest city glad I moved
