The list of baseball’s best and worst mascots is in! And, just in time for Opening Day on March 30th. Mascot names are always entertaining to me. Probably because I love a good pun. For example, a short fly ball that falls between the outfield and infield for a base hit is often referred to as a blooper. The Atlanta Braves’ mascot’s name is Blooper. The Cleveland Guardians’ mascot’s name is Slider. A slider is also a pitch most pitchers throw. Baseball doesn’t have cheerleaders so the mascot is there to keep things light and family-friendly during games. Recently, One Thousand people had to vote in a series of head-to-head matchups when it came to Major League Baseball mascots. The only teams that weren’t represented were the Yankees, Dodgers, and Angels. This was because these teams don’t have mascots. The list of baseball’s best and worst mascots is below!
