#23 Fred Bird St. Louis Cardinals
Power Ranking: #23
Team: St. Louis Cardinals
Mascot Name: Fred Bird
When it comes to some of the most decorative franchises in Professional Baseball the St. Louis Cardinals are definitely up there. They have won multiple championships and have had some of the game best best and brightest players (Ozzie Smith, Bob Gibson).BUT! one thing the St. Louis is lacking is not championship rings but a revamped mascot.
Fredbird has been the St. Louis Cardinals mascot since 1979, and just like our good buddy Raymond from Tampa Bay. FredBird shares an origin story. The story goes that Fredbird loved going to games with mama and papa bird. Fredbird fell in love with the game of baseball (especially with the ballpark food). This is when he knew he wanted to be apart of the game. Fredbird spent most of his time messing with umpires and engaging with players but their was one thing Fredbird liked more then all of that and that was making the crowd enjoy the game. He spend hours of the game dancing and hugging fans and when he's not enjoy a fresh dog, he's giving out T-shirts (What a guy!)
Overall, Fredbird has a rich history with the franchise, but it seems he can use a make over and I am saying a good one (not a New Orleans pelicans make over.) Considering he is a part of such an iconic organization, I believe he deserves a shot and the opportunity to be one the the top mascots in major league baseball.
