The Tigers’ uniforms style hasn’t changed much over the years, but the D logo on the jersey was altered 25 times until it was finally settled on in 1961, and the cap logo was altered 29 times. Still, the logos on the shirt and the hat don’t line up. The usage of ball caps to associate, symbolize, brand, and identify teams dates back a long time.
The Detroit Tigers are a major league baseball club headquartered in the city of Detroit, Michigan. The Tigers are a part of the American League Central division in Major League Baseball (MLB). It is one of the eight founding teams of the American League, formed in Detroit in 1894 as a member of the minor league Western League. In addition, they are the oldest continuously operating one-name, a one-city franchise.
The team was created in 1894 as a member of the Western League, which had been reconstituted at the time. They began their career at Boulevard Park, which is also known as League Park. For the following 104 seasons, the team’s headquarters were located in Bennett Park at the junction of Michigan and Trumbull Avenues, built-in 1895 by owner George Vanderbeck.
It was the Detroit Tigers that pioneered the idea of putting a team emblem on their caps. They had their famous “D” at the time, but the design has altered several times since.
