Clark the Cub and Major League Baseball’s Current Team Mascots (Part 1)

Introducing Clark The Cub, The Chicago Cubs' First Official Mascot

Introducing Clark The Cub, The Chicago Cubs’ First Official Mascot

The Chicago Cubs unveiled the franchise’s first official team mascot this week – Clark the Cub. He’s one of those kid-friendly fuzzy fellows.

There are a bunch of them all around the majors – both mascots, and goofy, fuzzy ones, too – and probably more than you know. In fact, 27 of 30 MLB teams have a mascot (or two or, in the Cincinnati Reds‘ case, four). Only the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels don’t.

Some mascots are cool. Some, not. Some don’t make any sense at all. You decide.

Today is Part 1 – from the Arizona Diamondbacks to the Miami Marlins – of Major League Baseball’s current (2014) team mascots – live and in person, too.

Tomorrow, Part 2 – from the Milwaukee Brewers to the Washington Nationals.
