He?s everywhere. Along the baseline at Fenway Park, in the stands, on top of the dugout, in ESPN commercials with David Ortiz.
That big furry creature is the Red Sox mascot, and he?s quite a character.
Then again, he has to be. It?s his job to pump up the crowd, entertain for a few minutes during an occasionally boring three hours and give free hugs. Without a mascot, something would be missing from a sporting event, which is why almost every professional and college team has one.
Whether it?s a real animal — the University of Georgia?s bulldog, Uga; the University of Colorado?s 1,300-pound buffalo, Ralphie; Baylor University?s twin black bears, Joy and Lady, just to name a few — or a bizarre cartoon creation in a massive suit, fans love the mascot.
And the Red Sox have one of the most unique and recognizable mascots in all of sports.
