Neither will scale down nicely when printed on shirts. A is too detailed, and Rawlings in rather small. In B the type at the bottom is WAY to small already on this HUGE logo, and the stroke is way too thin.
Neither isn't an option. And who said this is going on shirts?
This is for the team website.
well why don't you tell us a little more about your logo and what it's going to be used for before you get so snippy? a logo is something that you would use in multiple ways. printed on a shirt, embroidered on a hat, engraved in a trophy...
the first one is beveled and embossed to death and the second one looks like a hardware store logo. check the kerning on your text for rival on B the V and A are way out of whack.
the illustration is very cool in A but if it is clip art or a stock illustration you shouldn't use it in a logo. also when scaled down it won't replicate well.

This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.
there is no grey area when it comes to 1 color logos.
i like the 1st one, i agree with most that the 2nd one looks unprofessional. do keep in mind tho that even if they dont ask for a tshirt logo right now, once they see the logo and decide to use it, down the road once baseball season is starting up, they are going to realize that their old shirts dont match their website/sign/flyers, etc. thats when it will bite you. sometimes what i have been known to do is make it look very similar, but explain to them that while it looks cool online and on paper, the t-shirt making process is very different that web/print.
i did however one time make a t-shirt that was very complex and crazy colors, we found a supplier that printed on t-shirts in cmyk and was able to do the crazy design my client wanted. im sure there are t-shirt people on here that know about this more than i do, seeing as how the only t-shirts ive done are basic one color... and good 'ole iron on transfers... i do know that embossing and drop shadows dont transfer well at all that might have to go away regardless...
Typos are very important to all written form. It gives the reader something to look for so they aren't distracted by the total lack of content in your writing.

Anytime you say the word LOGO, professionals (such as us) rightly so think of the many applications logos are applied to. We would never do a logo for one purpose, like a web site, without it being applied to all aspects of the clients needs. It's just not professional and not done. If they already have a logo you should be applying that to the web site.
The first one is nice but as has been stated would not work well for other client needs.
Are these logos you have designed or logos that other people have designed? If other, then as PD suggested, you should request brand standards first. If they don't have that, then you will need to define...
