The Frederick Keys (High Class A; Carolina League) unveiled a new mascot, Frank Key, as well as plans for a Keys Fan Club for adults, “Frank Keys Army.”
The new mascot will be unveiled April 12 at the Keys’ opener.
“Frank Key is a tie to our community’s incredible history,” Keys Director of Marketing Adam Pohl said. “Frank Key will be another family friendly character who will rally our fans behind the Keys for years to come.”
Frank Key is a play on the team’s namesake. The Keys were named after Francis Scott Key, who wrote the words to the National Anthem at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland during the War of 1812. Francis Scott Key was from Frederick and is buried in the Mount Olivet Cemetery located right across the street from Harry Grove Stadium.
