Brand recognition is important in today’s business climate and that includes professional sports. One critical component to a team’s identity is its logo.

Los Angeles Angels center fielder Mike Trout, 24, is seemingly the perfect player. He’s a five-tool threat who reminds old-school scouts of Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays.

Major League Baseball is promoting an effort to identify the best four players in each team’s history with their "Franchise Four." We selected our choices for Mt. Rushmores a few years ago. Here are updated versions for all 30 teams. Who are the four baseball players that have risen above all others for each organization? The question sounds simple, right? Not so fast. Let the arguments begin.
