Mascots, we all love them. From having a baseball as a head, having a really large nose, or even having their own slide, mascots are always fun to watch. So, I gave you my top ten current mascots.
- Screech – Washington Nationals
Screech is a bald eagle, representing the nation’s bird, which makes sense because this team is based out of Washington, D.C.
- Mr. Red – Cincinnati Reds
The Mr. Red is a tribute to the old Reds (Red Stockings) logo, where it was just Mr. Red. If you want to see it, go check out my article about the top ten logos of today and tomorrow.
Slugerrr – Kansas City Royals
Slugerrr kind of represents the 2015 Royals, who won the World Series.He also has a crown on his head, representing the Royals.
- Mariner Moose – Seattle Mariners
This moose just simply looks cool. I’m not even sure if there’s any mooses or meese in Seattle. But, this moose in particular, simply brightens up the game.
6. Orbit – Houston Astros
Even Orbit’s name is a direct symbol of the team. An astro is an astronaut, and Orbit is an orbit, with planets as ears.
- Wally the Green Monster – Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox’ mascot is a tribute to their giant wall in left field, which is the Green Monster.
- Bernie Brewer – Milwaukee Brewers
Whenever you have a guy who has a giant mustache and is a brewer, you know you’re in Milwaukee. Bernie Brewer has a world-famous yellow slide in left-center field that he rides down every time the Brewers hit a homer.
3. Stomper – Oakland Athletics
Stomper is a tribute to the A’s’ old logo, which was an elephant, who is Stomper and is still the current mascot of the Athletics.
- Mr. Met – New York Mets
Another mascot symbolizing a classic logo. Mr. Met is another guy with a baseball as a head. He used to be the heart and soul of the team, until the Mets crushed his dreams and switched to the NY logo.
1. Phillie Phanatic – Philadelphia Phillies
Phillie Phanatic just kind of does everything. He looks like comes from Sesame Street and has a giant nose. Who wouldn’t love that?
