We have a mascot for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos (Class AA; Southern League): Kazoo, the result of a name-the-mascot contest.
“Kazoo was a huge hit,” said Blue Wahoos vice president of community relations Julie Borshak. “He has a very unique design and he’s extremely eye catching with his bright colors which we kept consistent with the team’s color scheme. Kazoo will be a great fixture in this wonderful community.”
Fans have been voting at various locations around the area, online and through ballots circulated in the local newspaper since March 2. Over 1,500 people participated by voting on their favorite name. The other five finalists were Blu, Capt. Catch, Salty, Sinker and Ono.
Kazoo’s costume is a fictional aquatic creature. He has webbed feet, fins for ears and he is sporting a stylish Blue Wahoos cap.
