The large letters “SAL” with a baseball to the right are the focal point of the South Atlantic League logo. The baseball is depicted in a fashion that creates an illusion of motion – it leaves white and gold streaks behind. You can see the full name of the League on a banner below. There’s also the text ‘Est. 1903’, divided into two bits on the full name’s either side. It alludes to the predecessor league that started in 1903.

The coloring is usually gold and white for this emblem.
