Minor-League Mascots

I love minor league baseball and I love minor league baseball mascots most of all. The Savannah Sand Gnats! The Greensboro Grasshoppers! The Augusta Greenjackets (get it?)! But my all-time favorite mascot now is "Slugger", the mascot of the Coastal Plain League's Wilson Tobs. Tobs, as in Tobacco. Yes, Slugger is in fact a large green pantomime Tobacco Worm.

Somehow you just know they've got to find a way to do a promotion where kids get to bite his head off.

And here I figured they'd go for a pantomime Joe Camel...
