It’s that time of year again. Minor League Baseball is rolling out their annual Mascot Mania contest. It’s a little different than last year, which featured a 64-seed March Madness-style bracket.
Last summer, Lou E. Loon, the Loons’ Ambassador of Fun, made it to the Elite 8.
The format is different this year. In the first round, Lou E. will compete with the mascots of other Midwest League teams, with the mascot that receives the most votes moving on to compete with the champions of other minor leagues around the country.
Loons fans can vote in two ways. The first is to vote on the Mascot Mania webpage. Click on this link. The second way is to log on to the Twitter machine and tweet two words: #MascotMania @greatlakesloons. It’s that simple.
Well you’re at it, vote for fellow Dodgers affiliates, Albuquerque Isotopes (@AbqTopes, Chattanooga Lookouts (@ChattLookouts) and Rancho Cucamonga Quakes (@Quakes_Baseball), who are partnering with the Loons in the first round, along with a few friends of the program in the Altoona Curve (@AltoonaCurve) and the State College Spikes (@SCSpikes).
So vote now and vote often! Lou E. Loon is one of the best reasons to come to Loons games. As a person that hasn’t always liked mascots, let me emphasize that Lou E. is one of the most unique mascots in baseball and in sports (Rall E. Camel actually isn’t too bad either). Show the rest of the country whey Lou E. is so great. Vote for him.
