Carl's Mascot Photos

Baseball Road Trip, August '98

Six ballparks in six days--the five clubs listed below, plus Yankee Stadium (they have no mascot),
and a trip to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

Rascal, Harrisburg Senators
What the hell IS this thing?
Ballwinkle & Buddy, Binghamton Mets
A team with two mascots, and I managed to catch them both at once. Ballwinkle is the one on the right.
Homer, Albany-Colonie Diamond Dogs
Boomer, Pittsfield Mets
I don't think Boomer is actually a walrus; he's just a big orange thing with a mustache.
Rookie, Hudson Valley Renegades
A Renegades employee wrote me with an explanation for the sling. Earlier that season, Rookie fell off the roof of the dugout, and the actor broke his arm. The actors who subsequently played Rookie wore the sling in honor of their fallen comrade.
