Southpaw Wore a Toga

Southpaw in TogaLast night was Greek Heritage Night at The Cell.

Southpaw Wore a Toga.

Of course, Southpaw always dresses for the occasion. Here are a few pictures of Southpaw from Elvis Night, Mullet Night, Half-Way to St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Halloween, Fourth of July, and even Mustache Day!

Southpaw & Fan in K-Zone

In the K-Zone, Southpaw sat in my row about four seats away. He wore a Chris Sale K-Zone T-shirt.

I couldn’t find a good picture of Southpaw on Dog Night. (He had floppy ears and a tail.)

Many fans think that the San Diego Chicken was the first baseball mascot, but according to Wikipedia it was Mr. Met in 1964. Here’s a link to present and past mascots.

I was going to make fun of the pantsless Clark, but then I remembered the mascots that Jerry Reinsdorf introduced after he bought the White Sox —

I was surprised to discover that the White Sox had a short-lived mascot in 1990 named

Wally the White Sox Wolf.

You can get his pin on eBay for $1.95.
