PRESS RELEASE – Preparations for the 2020 season of North Shore Navigators baseball are well underway. On Monday, co-owner Derek January unveiled the team’s new logos, ticket information and some other pertinent details for the 13th straight summer of collegiate baseball at Lynn’s historic Fraser Field.
“We have been working very hard behind the scenes since we purchased the team in late September,” said January. “The reception we’ve received as new owners from the community has been overwhelming, and we are looking forward to a great year ahead.”
NEW LOGOS INTRODUCED
Saugus native Jeremy Tringale’s logo featuring a gator ― like the team’s popular mascot, Chomps ― emerged from a field of nearly 20 entries in a public contest that concluded last month. The logo also features a new orange-and-blue color scheme.
“The logo contest confirmed what we believed when we bought the team ― that the Navs have great fans all over the North Shore,” said January. “The new logos and color scheme will bring a fresh look to a new start. When you see the navy and orange hats and shirts, you’ll know the members of Navs Nation!”
In honor of submitting the winning logo design, Tringale will throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to a game this summer and receive a prize pack including a four-pack of season tickets and new merchandise.
“I wanted to do something different and thought the gator is a fun and recognizable play on the Navigators’ identity,” said Tringale, who is a senior architecture major at UMass Amherst. “I think it provides new and refreshing imagery for the team’s look. My goal was to create something clean and recognizable without going over the top and I think this design holds up.”
A second logo featuring a compass and the new color scheme, reminiscent of the previous nautical look, will also be introduced. It was designed by the Navs’ own Meli Abraham.
