When the franchise was looking for a new identity, they decided to dwell upon the reputation of Akron, Ohio, as the Rubber Capital of the World. At the beginning of the previous century, all of the country’s big rubber companies were located here. The rubber theme can be seen everywhere, from the way the duck’s neck is depicted on the Akron RubberDucks logo (it reminds a tire), to the tire trace behind the word “RubberDucks.”
