MLB 1969
Designer:  Jerry Dior of
Sandgren & Murtha
Typography:  Franklin Gothic Extra Condensed
Launched:  April 7, 1969

Major League Baseball was founded in 1903, but did not adopt an official logo until 1969. The red, white and blue "Batter" logo was commissioned by the league in preparation for the 1969 Professional Baseball Centennial Celebration. The logo made its debut at the beginning of the 1969 season, but its authorship was disputed until 2008, when Jerry Dior was confirmed to be behind the design. Dior stated that he created the logo during a single afternoon sometime in 1968, using photography of numerous MLB athletes as reference (contrary to popular belief that he modeled it after Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew).

On March 20, 2019, the MLB changed the color shades of its logo again, this time to match those of the American flag, in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of professional baseball. The league's full name was also officially removed from the logo and replaced with its acronym in a new typeface, although only the symbol is still used in most cases.
