High Desert Mavericks Logo history

The original logo appeared in 1991 when the team was set up and it was in use till 2016 when the Mavs were dissolved. It features a wordmark with the team’s name. The stylized word “Mavericks” is in red color. The letters look like three-dimensional objects. The letter “M” is “wearing” a black cowboy hat embellished with small baseballs. The “High Desert” in black color and in simple font is above and a little to the left. The wordmark “Baseball Club” in black is underneath to the right.

It should be noted that in the American Southwest the word “maverick” is perceived as a synonym for a cowboy wandering in the High Desert. This fact explains the “cowboy” character of the High Desert Mavericks’ logo.

The logo has strong ties with the local community but it lacks in baseball theme. Except for the tiny baseballs and the “Baseball Club” in small letters there is nothing else in it to indicate the sport.
