THE CPYS CREST
The Central Plains Youth Sports Crest is more than it may appear at first glance.
 
The crest is comprised of a variety of shapes, all of which have a baseball lineage.  There is, of course, the standard diamond shapes representative of the classic baseball playing fields.
 
To right and left sides are the "bleachers" which took their shape from the old Western League Association Ballpark on Ackerman Island in Wichita in the 1920's and 1930's. 
 
The center circle represents the pitching mound and the inserts the bases of the game.
 
The colors are derived from the grass of the playing fields and the golden colors of the Kansas plains.
 
The lettering is classic sports block text traditional to baseball and other sports.
