With MLB’s regular season winding down – we felt it fitting to highlight some of the best things in baseball. Of course we need to include Mascot Races in that conversation. Mascot races had been a staple in Milwaukee since the early nineties – but in recent year’s many other teams have created their own versions that keep crowds entertained between innings.
Here are a few of our favorite from this year…
5. Pierogi Race – Pittsburgh
Potato Pete and Cheese Chester prove that mascot races can get a little testy between the racers.
4. Target Field Mascots- Minnesota
Perhaps the oddest (and most produced) race comes out of Minnesota with characters including Louie the Loon and Babe the Blue Ox.
3. Legends Race- Arizona
Legends races are taking ballparks by storm featuring players from yesteryear.
2. President’s Race- Washington DC
The President’s Race in DC has become an instant classic with Teddy Roosevelt as a fan favorite.
1. Sausage Race – Milwaukee
The original sausage race in Milwaukee is the best of the best- featuring Brett Wurst, Stosh Jonjak, Guido, Frankie Furter and Cinco.
Bonus: All-Star Mascot Race – Minnesota
If you need just one reason to go to the Home Run Derby, its to see the All-Star Mascots duke it out of course.
