Voting has begun in the first round of a 64-mascot tournament to determine who is the best in the minor leagues. If you feel like voting, follow this link over to the MiLB.com site.
3 of our Tigers affiliates have mascots participating in the tournament – all in the Midwest Region:
Muddy the Mudhen is facing off against Swoop of the South Bend Silver Hawks
C. Wolf is up against Homer of the Peoria Chiefs and…
Crash the River Rascal versus Al Tuna of the Altoona Curve.
Crash will be getting my votes all the way through to the finish, though some (like Chef Wasabi) may be sillier. All difficult contests, no doubt. If you’re a Muddy fan, though, do be careful when casting your vote – we don’t want this thing spoiled by any dangling chads. There is another Muddy in the South Region – Muddy the Mudcat. Not a chicken.
