PRESS RELEASE – The New Britain Rock Cats Baseball Club, the Double-A Eastern League Affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, has unveiled a new alternate logo which the players will wear on their hats during the 2014 season.
The new logo (color file attached) features the Rock Cats popular mascot “Rocky” on stage singing into a microphone which is a brown baseball bat. Rocky is wearing a metallic jump suit while leaning forward and pointing into the air with his gray tail and feet showing. The players will wear this design for several games next season.
