The top 5 mascots in the MLB

As promised, here they are – with videos!

5. Wally the Green Monster (Red Sox)

Wally is very solid mascot. The name is absolutely brilliant: WALLy the GREEN MONSTER. Great job. Beyond that he is just like any other mascot in that he kind of looks like a Sesame Street character. 

Also I will point out, you get bonus points for being in an ESPN commercial.

B+

4. The Pirate Parrot (Pirates)

Granted he looks a little eerie, but the whole idea of the Pirates mascot being parrot is great. Kudos to whoever came up with that.

Also, the Parrot tends to be one of the games most entertaining mascots. Think about it, he makes sense, he isn’t too creepy, and he’s fun.

3. Sluggerrr (Royals)

This is truly well done. It makes sense, it’s entertaining, and has a great name. This is one of the cleanest looking mascots as well.

And if you’ve ever been to a Royals game, they use him well.

2. Orbit (Astros)

This, behind the Phanatic, is the most entertaining of the mascots. Not only that, it fits the team really well. Orbit is the perfect name for an alien. He isn’t at all creepy, he is SUPER fuzzy, and he loves moonpies.

You can’t ever beat the Phanatic, but you can come close.

*Fair Warning: this may suck you into an hour of watching Orbit highlights.

1. Phillie Phanatic (Phillies)

The Phillie Phanatic is THE mascot. No one does anything better.

Name? Classic.

Entertaining? The best.

Looks good? Awesome and fuzzy as all get out.

Makes sense? He symbolizes the Phillies more than their logo.

The best in the biz. Also, Tommy Lasorda beating up the Phanatic is maybe the greatest thing ever.
