Well, that didn’t last long: the Amarillo Sox (independent; American Association) yanked their new, energetic mascot after complaints from fans regarding his, um, excited nature.
The mascot was unveiled during last Friday’s game, but it didn’t end up quite the way GM Mark Lee anticipated.
A new mascot is expected to be unveiled this weekend. Then again, the Sox may have missed out on a wonderful opportunity to sell a sponsorship to Viagra or Cialis.
