Now They Have a Mascot 1/13/14
CHICAGO - Having tried just about everything in the 106 years since they won a World Series, the Chicago Cubs are introducing a mascot for the 2014 campaign.
Drawings released by the Cubs on Monday show a young bear wearing a Cubs jersey and a backward blue baseball cap. The mascot is named Clark; the team plays at Wrigley Field, located at Clark and Addison streets on Chicago's North Side.
Clark will greet fans at the ballpark before and during games, and the mascot will have a Twitter account and Facebook page.
The Cubs had a mascot in 1916, nine years after formally adopting the Cubs moniker. It was a real live bear. Didn't last long.
