The fans expecting just another cartoonish creature were surprised by the new Richmond Flying Squirrels logo. The creature looked more like a superhero than a squirrel from a cartoon. The superhero had an acorn over its chest with the letter “R” written on it.

The emblem was developed by San Diego-based sports branding firm Brandiose and even got the title of the best logo of the year from Ballpark Digest.
