In 2014, the Cubs will be celebrating 100 years of Wrigley Field. On Friday the team released a new logo to commemorate the celebration.
The organization announced that Brandon Ort of New Brenmen, Ohio submitted the winning design for the "Wrigley Field Turns 100" logo contest. His design is pictured below:
The new logo will appear on a patch on the Cubs' 2014 uniforms, as well as on memorabilia sold within the ballpark. Fans can check out the unveiling of the new logo this afternoon at Wrigley Field.
“We’re very excited to unveil our official logo celebrating 100 years of Wrigley Field and to kick off what will be a season-long celebration of the past century at this beautiful ballpark,” said senior marketing director Alison Miller. “Our fans will want to be here to remember and possibly re-experience many of the historic moments that occurred at Wrigley Field.”
Later in the offseason, additional details will be released on the Cubs' upcoming promotions to celebrate the anniversary of their historic ballpark.
