Baseball logo contest

I'm not running a baseball logo contest. But CNBC is.

Darren Rovell of CNBC announced a contest where folks like you and me can vote on which logos we like best.

It's laid out pretty much like the NCAA basketball tournament. There are four brackets of 16, and the teams in each bracket are seeded 1 to 16. Rovell picked the teams and seeded them in the brackets.

Teams I've been following ... like the Columbus Catfish and the Montgomery Biscuits ... are in the field of 64.

Voting actually began earlier this week, and one bracket is done. And it's the bracket that included the Catfish and Biscuits.

The Catfish easily won their face-off with the Tri-City Valley Cats, but the Biscuits fell in a close one to the Casper Ghosts.

If you're a baseball fan, you might want to check out the logos of some of the teams. Rovell picked from 160 affiliated teams (Minor League Baseball) and 63 independent teams. So, not every team is in the running. But in fairness, he did pick some good ones.

I'm going to keep voting, and hope that in their final year, the Columbus Catfish can go out a winner.

  1. Casper Ghosts have glow in the dark hats... No team can compete with that.
