The Kannanpolis baseball team will no longer be quite so intimidating. A rebranding effort is completed now and the team will take the field next year as the Cannon Ballers.
The Single-A Chicago White Sox affiliate in Kannapolis, North Carolina, will have a new name in 2020. Just moments ago, the team announced it will be the Kannapolis Cannon Ballers, an homage to the textile plant Cannon Mills. The team’s identity, designed by Dan Simon of Studio Simon, centers around a human cannonball character who is meant to personify the adventurous spirit of the area. (Sportslogos)
Looking forward to seeing how this updates their mascot and in-game elements, and I can only assume this is a boon for business for David “the Bullet” Smith.
