The Indians Introduce Their New Mascot…..Bacon

While Slider, along with pals Ketchup, Mustard and Onion have all been staples in terms of kid-loving mascots at Progressive Field the last number of years, there’s a new girl in town in terms of the introduction of a new mascot.


The announcement was made today that Bacon, direct from Sugardale Foods, is going to be the newest Mascot roaming the stands and having fun at Progressive Field.

Who knew first off that Bacon was a female, and also that it would make for a good mascot?

    Instead of more mascots, I suggest the Tribe Braintrust should work on improving the attention span to baseball of young fans….and anyone else who needs these mindless distractions.

    Has anyone wondered what the youngsters are being taught about honesty, fairplay, ethics, good sportsmanship and cheating while watching the Hot Dog Derby. Has there EVER been a derby without foul play? Why?
