The question was posed to me about the origin of the Bakersfield Blaze logo. All that I know is it has been in use since 2001. I do not know why the flames are reminiscent of the Canadian maple leaf. Since Bakersfield is in California, I don't see any correlation. Does anyone else have any info? I'll see what I can do to look up any connection, if there is any.
I've never seen, nor heard of it. Even in a walk-off situation, you're still supposed to round the bases. Joe Adcock had a HR turn into a single because he passed Aaron rounding the bases when he broke-up the 12 inning "perfect" game by Harvey Haddux. Robin Ventura had a GS turned into a single in the '99 NLCS because he never made it to homeplate after he was mobbed ny his teammates.
