NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball's 150th anniversary logo features the silhouetted batter created for the 1969 celebration of the first professional baseball team.
The 1994 logo changed the batter and ball to gold, had "125th ANNIVERSARY" below and was surrounded by a gold and black border. This year's patch has a darker blue.
Teams also wore a logo in 1939 to commemorate the now discredited myth that Abner Doubleday invented baseball in 1839 at Cooperstown, New York.
MLB said the 150th anniversary patch also will be on caps for March 28 openers.
