Origin of the emblem

Batavia Muckdogs emblem
The word “Muckdog” derives from the term “mucklands,” which is used to refer to dark, very fertile soil. Batavia is surrounded by mucklands. Also, local people like to tell legends of feral dogs who lived on the mucklands. When the franchise’s creative team was in search of a new brand identity, they came across these legends and decided to make them the base of the new name and logo.
