Ottawa’s latest pro baseball team is using an iconic piece of the city’s skyline as a key part of its logo design.

Ottawa Champions logo

The Ottawa Champions, who will begin play in the Can-Am League next year, unveiled the design at Ottawa Stadium on Thursday.

The logo has a red, white and blue colour scheme, but gets much more Canadian after that, with a maple leaf and the Peace Tower incorporated in the design.

“The Ottawa Champions aspire to reflect our community and our new logo represents our passion for playing the game of baseball right here in the nation’s capital,” said Champions president David Gourlay in a statement.

Mr. Gourlay also announced the launch of a new website with ticket information for the 2015 season. He also said the team will bid for the Can-Am all-star game in 2017, the year Canada celebrates its 150th birthday.

Mayor Jim Watson and Orleans Coun. Bob Monette joined Mr. Gourlay at the stadium for the unveiling.

This is the second go-around for an Ottawa franchise in the Can-Am league. The Ottawa Rapidz competed in 2008, but didn’t come back for a second season.

    Marc If the city put the park up for sale it would be sold with in a month there has been alot of interest over the past few years from turning it into a concert hall to a soccer stadium.

    I don't understand why the city doesn't just bulldoze the ballpark into the ground and sell or lease the property. Baseball does not work in this city. How many time does city council have to beat this horse before they realize it is dead.

    Barry The city is spending $2 million to fix the stadium up but there getting around $100,000 per year in rent plus $250,000 in life cycle fees they also get a cut of parking/concession and naming rights of the stadium.

    Plus ca change............... Give it until 2016. I don't know what got into City Council on this one, but taxpayers should have their check books at the ready.
