Mascots are a part of baseball. In some places its a bigger deal than in others. I mean how many people know the Rangers have a mascot? Rangers Captain just doesn’t strike me as a top notch mascot, even though he fits good with the team name.
There are some that are icons, and these are my favorites.
3. Tampa Bay Rays Raymond
I’m not fully sure what he is, but he looks awesome.
2. Bernie the Brewer
How can you not love Bernie? Especially with that mustache.
1. The Philly Phanatic
While I may not be a huge Phillies fan, the Phanatic is pretty awesome.
