From 1980 to 1985, the Chicago White Sox's AA affiliate was the Glens Falls White Sox in Upstate New York. The "GlenSox" played at East Field in Glens Falls' East End neighborhood. The team switched affiliations to the Detroit Tigers and rebranded as the Glens Falls Tigers in 1986. The Tigers departed for London, Ontario two seasons later and made their final relocation to their current home in Trenton, NJ. They are currently known as the Trenton Thunder; affiliates of the New York Yankees. In the spirit of faux-back design, I created a concept for a new minor league baseball club in Glens Falls that pays tribute to the city's first of six teams.
The home and away uniforms utilize a traditional style with blue sleeves. A script-letter G patch that is derived from the secondary wordmark is worn on the right sleeve. The alternate jersey nicknamed "Cool Blue" is an altered throwback of the original GlenSox blue jersey. The retro uniform pays homage to the hey-day of the infamous 1970s powder-blue uniform. This throwback uniform is "winning ugly".

RETRO 1970s UNIFORM
The primary wordmark is stylized based on the 1976-1991 Chicago White Sox logo. The secondary script wordmark is inspired by the hand-painted Kiley's Pharmacy wall ad on the corner of Elm and South Street in Downtown Glens Falls.
