Not in the form of running around on the field or in the stands. But, the picture on every uniform is of a bear cub. (Chicago Bears is the football team). The fans wouldn't put up with a guy in uniform running around as it distracts from the purpose of being at Wrigley Field....to watch baseball.

When I went to Knights Stadium (back in the day when they were a feeder team to the Cubs) it really annoyed me to have that dragon running around. You don't stop REAL BASEBALL for such things!! my son told me it was for the kids...to which I replied...it is a kid's DREAM to go to Cubs park to see a baseball game...and to learn the game...not watch stupid mascots. Guess that I am prejudiced, I was at Cubs park every Tuesday from the time that I was able to ride the bus by myself (about 8 or so). Tuesdays were Ladies Days so girls got in free! I sat with my friends and learned the game.

Of course, now I can't go to Knight's Stadium, they are now a feeder team for the (Chicago) White Sox. It is completely forbidden (by tradition) for me to go there.

Cubs blue runs deep!!

Well the NRA says that the attendance at the Charlotte convention was 72,128. A record breaking crowd apparently.
