Dickinson Exhibition League baseball team releases name and logo
The Dickinson-based Exhibition League baseball team will be called the Badlands Big Sticks, according to a press release Friday, which also included the team logo.
The name originates from Teddy Roosevelt's often-heard saying, "Speak softly and carry a big stick, you will go far."
The logo, designed by Ross Johnson Design Company, depicts Roosevelt, designed donned in the team colors of navy blue, red and white, holding a baseball bat.
"We believe that quote speaks to the character of this beautiful area and its people." said Mitch Messer, Vice President of Operations for the Expedition League, via the press release.
The Badlands Big Sticks will open their inaugural season on May 25, 2018 and the Big Sticks will host 32 home games at Dakota Community Bank & Trust Ballpark.
