The new Minor League Baseball logo looks very familiar

There's a new Minor League Baseball logo. And if you think it looks a little familiar, that's completely intentional. The new design is intended to resemble the Major League Baseball logo in order to communicate a more evident connection with the league's bigger sibling.

Minor League Baseball, or MiLB, contains teams affiliated with MLB clubs, and the MLB has adopted a "One Baseball" philosophy in recent years, looking to extend its influence over the lower leagues. But many fans seem to think the new logo is confusing similar to the MLB's identity. And they don't like it (see our pick of the best sports logos for successful designs).
