The Houston Astros unveiled their new team identity this Friday and for the most part, it was what we expected. Of course, there had been leaks here and there but seeing them officially gave me a pretty unique feeling about it.
For one thing, I like it when teams take a little bit of their past history into their current identity. But maybe these Astros could have taken from another part of their past. However, this new set is refreshing to the eyes.
The only problem I have with it is that despite it being simple, it’s too generic. It just seems like any other baseball uniform out there with the generic text and template. For a team trying to so hard to emphasize the “NASA” aspect of their identity, space travel seems so boring if we look at their uniform.
