Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders update classic ‘SWB’ logo for 2022 jerseys, caps, and merch
From a press release:
The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders are bringing back a familiar team mark in 2022.
The club will once again use the “SWB” from the days of the Lackawanna County Stadium as an alternate logo. The logo will be featured on New Era road caps and new alternate jerseys during the upcoming season.
The RailRiders, the Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, will continue to use the same logos and marks as they have in recent years but are pleased to bring this Red Barons-era mark back into the fold with an updated spin, adapting the color scheme for use with the current palette.
The new road cap and alternate jersey will utilize navy material and a white “SWB” crest.
In addition to on-field use, the “SWB” logo will also appear on merchandise at the SWB Station Team Store, on promotional giveaways distributed at games, and in the team’s marketing and communications this season.
The 2022 season opens on Tuesday, April 5 in Syracuse, with the home opener on Tuesday, April 12 against the Norfolk Tides at PNC Field (235 Montage Mountain Rd., Moosic). Season ticket memberships and mini-plans are available now at milb.com.
