About the Typeface
Batter Up Regular is a baseball-themed round slab serif typeface. The typeface has been designed for old school layouts and team jerseys. Batter Up was inspired by the Key Street logo, and fleshed out using simple modular forms.
Over the years, Batter Up has taken on a number of dramatic overhauls. Many of the characters have been entirely replaced several times since the initial release.
The newest version of Batter Up, released in February 2016, features significant modifications to existing letters. Round letters with terminations, now have have square corners at the terminating ends. These modifications can be seen on the C, G, S, 2, 3, 5, 6, and 9.
The terminations have been extended on the T and the L. The T, N, U, and X have been widened, and the Z has been made more narrow. The angled termination on the 1 has been replaced with a horizontal termination, and the flags on the Y and V have been removed. New punctuation symbols have been created as well so as to extend the usefulness of the font.
The overall look of the typeface has been improved by increasing glyph width, and kerning has been adjusted to fit the overall wider monotone look of the typeface.
This typeface has been designed with the following features:
