How to Use MLB Logos

Requesting Permission

    Major league baseball offers various ways to inquire about copyrighted media. The official website, http://www.mlb.com, provides physical addresses, phone numbers and email addresses for different departments involved in the permission process. Regardless of how you decide to ask permission, be prepared to deliver a solid pitch – in other words, why do you need to use the MLB logo and how will it further both your goals and the image of the game? You can call the licensing department directly at 212-485-3444 for more information. If you feel confident in your pitch, you can fax it to 212-485-3456 or email it to license.request@mlb.com for the quickest response. Individual MLB teams handle their own licensing and media departments. The process for requesting permission remains the same, but you should send logo inquiries directly to your target affiliate.
