Mascot Hall of Fame
The Mascot Hall of Fame honors sports mascots in North America, and was founded by David Raymond, the original Phillie Phanatic. Originally online, the physical museum first opened in 2018. As of 2022, the Mascot Hall of Fame has inducted 26 professional and college mascots across baseball, basketball, football and hockey.
Each year, mascots are elected into the Mascot Hall of Fame by the voting membership and an executive committee made up of performers, sports executives, and other individuals intimate with the mascot community. Ultimately, six finalist in each category are placed on the ballot for consideration. There is a public online vote that contributes a percentage of the final tally.
Within the museum, you can also visit T-Shirt Shooter Stadium, Centier Bank Sports Court, and Basic Training Center, which is an interactive, fun zone without the ultimate children’s playground.
