Springfield Minor Baseball Association excited to announce new team name and logo
In February 2020 the Springfield Minor Baseball Association (SMBA) announced that the name “Braves”, used by the baseball association for decades, would be retired to promote inclusivity within the community. The SMBA Board is now very proud to unveil our new name and logo. Introducing the Springfield Hawks!
“We, as a board, are very excited to conclude the process by unveiling the new name and logo. We invited community consultation and participation through the use of a survey to choose a name and then provided direction for the logo. We wanted the logo to incorporate the new name while maintaining the colours of our club. We are very happy with our new look.” – Mike Peterson, President Springfield Minor Baseball
While COVID-19 significantly impacted the 2020 season, we are very much looking forward to launching the 2021 baseball season. We will be providing updates on the new season shortly and anticipate that player registration will begin in late February. Please keep updated through our website and social media feeds.
