The Chicago Cubs welcomed a new member to the family Monday, introducing the team’s first official mascot in modern history.
Clark, who is named after Clark and Addison, the intersection where Wrigley Field is located, might not help the Cubs bring a World Series back to Chicago, but he will do his part for the community.
“The Cubs are thrilled to welcome Clark as the team’s official mascot,” Cubs senior director of marketing Alison Miller said. “Clark is a young, friendly cub who can’t wait to interact with our other young Cubs fans. He’ll be a welcoming presence for families at Wrigley Field and an excellent ambassador for the team in the community.”
The mascot was created after the team reviewed surveys and fan interviews that revealed people wanted more family-friendly entertainment at the Friendly Confines, according to a press release from the team.
