AquaSox release commemorative logo for 2014

EVERETT — In honor of their 30th anniversary in the Northwest League, the Everett AquaSox on Tuesday released a commemorative logo.

The 2014 season marks the minor-league baseball team’s 20th season as a Seattle Mariners affiliate and 31st in the Northwest League.

The new emblem incorporates the current AquaSox color scheme along with a hint of orange in recognition of the team’s previous affiliation with the San Francisco Giants. The franchise was known as the Everett Giants for 11 seasons (1984-1994) before becoming the Everett AquaSox prior to the 1995 season.

“We are extremely proud of the history and tradition that our franchise has built over 30 years,” AquaSox executive vice president Tom Backemeyer said in a press release. “We are grateful for the support we’ve received from fans of minor-league baseball here in Snohomish County and throughout the Puget Sound Region.”

The AquaSox open their 2014 season June 13 at home against the Hillsboro Hops.
