Jerry Dior, a graphic designer who created one of the most
instantly recognizable logos in the history of American
marketing — the silhouetted batter that has long symbolized
Major League Baseball — but who received official credit for it
only 40 years after the fact, died on May 10 at his home in
Edison, N.J. He was 82.
Truly one of the best and most enduring logos in the world.
