Last night, the Cubs introduced Clark the Cub to the world – their new official team mascot and the first in modern history.
Aptly named after the street that runs by the third base side of Wrigley Field, Clark was brought on in response to fans who, through interviews and surveys, requested more family-friendly entertainment at the ballpark.
Ask and you shall receive.
While you won’t see him around the field during the game, Clark has volunteered to welcome patrons into Wrigley, run the bases postgame and act as ambassador for the Cubs in the community.
Imagine trying to chase down a fly ball with that beast pacing just beyond the outfield fence.
