Potomac Nationals place mascot on the DL


From the in­cred­ibly creative press release:

“Mascot Uncle Slam placed on 60-Day DL (retroactive to 7/4)

... Uncle Slam will miss the remainder of the season due to the fire at the Pfitz and is recovering but will be fully healthy for the 2013 season.  Expect Uncle Slam in 2013 to be new and improved at the Pfitz with a brand new attitude!

With Potomac under the Carolina League minimum of one mascot, the P-Nats are looking for help from any team or organization that is willing to let Potomac adopt their mascot.  Any mascot willing to sign on for a two-month contract with the Potomac Nationals will be handsomely rewarded with baseball bucks, Chilli's Lemonade, Chick-Fil-A sandwiches and the chance to watch fireworks every Saturday night.”

I can think of a few area mascots who might be willing to cut their offseason short to help entertain the fine folks in Woodbridge. I’d help, but I don’t think that footie pajamas count as a mascot costume.

If you’re a mascot and willing to help, email Potomac general manager Josh Olerud (jolerud at potomacnationals dot com) and tell him the Bog sent you.
