Minor League Baseball’s Top 10 Mascots
Minor League Baseball is home to many things: cheap baseball, expensive beer and easy access to player autographs.
Since most minor leaguers will never make it to The Show, they’re enjoying every moment they can in the regional spotlight. But even with the constant turnover there remains one constant in the ever-changing minors: baseball’s best mascots.
MiLB is running a national contest on their website right now: Mascot Mania. They’re asking the country to vote for the best minor league mascots. While we’re sure the nation will vote appropriately (then again, this is the same nation that left Yasiel Puig out of the Allstar Game), we felt it necessary to whittle down their 160 mascots to our own Top 10.
From there, we gave each mascot points for Creativity, Originality and Execution on a scale of 1-10. The mascot’s relation to the team was rated on a scale of 1-5, so as to not vastly penalize a team like the Las Vegas 51s – good luck getting a mascot to represent a number.
With that being said, we’re proud to showcase Minor League Baseball’s best mascots!
