St. Louis Browns

My 9yo son has his second baseball game of the season tonight. I showed him the St. Louis Browns website last night at 8:30pm (his bedtime) – and I found myself explaining the site and the team to him until 9pm (my bedtime) – Satchel Paige, 3’7″ Eddie Gaedel, and yes, it’s the St. Louis Browns, not the Cardinals.

This is a great site by HLK, out of St. Louis, Missouri¬†– and with the first week of MLB Spring Training going on ¬†right now, we thought we’d go a little in depth on this new / “old fan club” site:

 

Preloader

Preloader

Most pre-loaders are pretty standard, Bootstrappy looking – not this one. And if you’re on a slower connection, you’ll even be thrown “Out!”

Home Page

st-louis-browns

Great video background to start the Home page – especially when you consider the video is 80+ years old.

Header

slb-header

Little Easter Egg in the Header – mouse over the off-screen Menu for a cool little / no-hamburger icon.

Navigation

slb-menu

Like how the Menu modal is semi-transparent so it keeps the video background available for the subtle movement, keeping the life in the site.

History

slb-history

The History portal is a cool horizontal scrolling slider – like how each page title is unique in look and feel, and appropriate descriptive images.

History Detail

slb-history-detail

Four great detail pages on the History of the St. Louis Browns. There is some parallax transitions as you scroll down – and even a little mouse-over parallax on the top image.

Players

slb-players

The Player page is a horizontal slider again. I think it gets a little glitchy when you get to the S-Z area – could have been my connection at the time. Either way – great way of highlighting the players without be a caricature of a baseball card – just went through it again – it’s just cool.

Player Detail

slb-player-detail

Like the Player Detail modals – could spend hours reading their stories – so glad it also looks nice.

Blog / News

slb-blog

It’s a little different than the rest of the site, but the blog / events / news page has a really good look, both in desktop and mobile.

So go and enjoy the St. Louis Browns fan club website – It’s fun and really like when someone takes time to present something of historical value in such a beautiful way.

Interested in Unmatchedstyle profiling your website in-depth? Just fill out the form – “need the info” – make sure you talk a little about the design so we can quote you. We can’t guarantee it to be fully analyzed like this one, and can’t guarantee it will get reviewed (we get a lot of requests, and try to have some standards) – but we’re making this type of long form gallery post part of our weekly editorial calendar. Let us know what you think!
