#MascotMania! Vote Deuce!

Deuce_MascotMania

Today marks the beginning of Mascot Mania, a competition where YOU decide who has the best mascot in all of minor league baseball. From now until August 1 is Round One, in which the ‘Riders mascot, Deuce, is competing against the other seven mascots from the Texas League.

Last year was the inagural year of the Mascot Mania, but the rules have changed this season. Deuce needs only to outlast the other Texas League mascots to capture victory and make it the finals.

Contest Details

Dates: Round One begins on Thursday, July 18 and runs through noon on Thursday, August 1. Round Two starts around 2 PM EDT on Thursday, August 1 and ends at noon EDT on Thursday, August 8.

Matchups: Every team will be in a group with the other teams from its League for Round One. Deuce is in a round with the other Texas League mascots. Each League winner will advance to Round Two to compete for the overall championship. The overall winner will receive a “Championship Belt”:
