Mr. Sky Sox

In the history of baseball mascots the ones with baseballs for heads are pretty creepy (plus the Red Sox one that didn’t have a baseball for a head but had something else somewhere else that I just had to include in this post because it’s hella creepy, see below):

The Cincinnati Reds had Mr. Redlegs…

…the New York Mets were represented by Mr. Met…

…and the Red Sox had the infamous Massive BonerMan.

Now the Colorado Springs Sky Sox are joining in with their own baseball-headed freak of nature, behold, Mr. Sky Sox!

I have the feeling, as cool as Mr. Sky Sox is, he will never replace Sox the Fox…

SOCKO! Who looks to be a close relative of Massive BonerMan

Way, way off-putting once you see it.
