Top Nine Mascots in the Majors

By Jack Maxwell

What makes the perfect baseball mascot? The costume? The name? Here are the Top 9 mascots in the Major Leagues today:

  • FREDBIRD, ST. LOUIS CARDINALS
    I'm a sucker for plays on words. Fredbird is a redbird with an "F" in the front of his name. Get it? He's a red bird with a human name.
  • MARINER MOOSE, SEATTLE MARINERS
    Any mascot that nearly whacks Red Sox outfielder Coco Crisp with his ATV is ok with me.
  • SLUGERRR, KANSAS CITY ROYALS
    You know you're the jam when you have a crown built in to your noggin. However, he could probably use a spelling lesson. What's with the three Rs at the end of his name?
  • SLIDER, CLEVELAND INDIANS
    You have to respect a mascot who's in touch with his feminine side.
  • MR. MET, NEW YORK METS
    In all honesty, Mr. Met's greatest quality is that he's easy to Photoshop, which has led to countless upset Mets fans posting this image on the internet.
  • THE SAUSAGES, MILWAUKEE BREWERS
    How can you not appreciate running sausages?
  • BERNIE BREWER, MILWAUKEE BREWERS
    Having what I can only assume is an inebriated mascot slide down a gigantic slide 100 feet in the air is probably not the wisest idea. But it's darn entertaining.
  • SWINGING FRIAR, SAN DIEGO PADRES
    Nothing says we're going to beat the heck out of our opponents like a pudgy, balding man of the cloth.
  • PHILLIE PHANATIC, PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
    Not only does he do the obligatory ATV gimmick, but he also heckles the heck out of the opposition, including waving his oversized rear-end in their faces. It's a gas.
