IT’S the eyes and the baseball bat that gives me the idea that this mascot is looking for trouble. Its name doesn’t help either: The Phillie Phanatic. He rooted in 1978 for the first time for the Philadelphia Phillies and has been their mascot even since. This photograph is from the beginning of his career. See more mascots in this essay from the New Yorker.
