The MLB, in the past, has made no secret of its love for mascots.
They’ve always had a special place in the hearts of fans.
However, for the past decade, mascots have become more of an afterthought.
This year, the National League is taking a cue from the NBA and the MLB.
The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox have announced plans to rename their mascots to “Bigg.”
It is expected that the teams will use the name for both the baseball team and the team’s logo.
That’s right, the logos of the two teams will be named the same.
In an interview with the Boston Herald, Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said, “The New York team is going to use the B-G-B-G logo and we’re going to rename our logo.”
The Red Sox are the only team that has chosen not to use their name for a mascot.
“We’ve made our mind up, and we’ve said, we’ve made a decision,” Manfred added.
“The name B-Bigg is a little bit of a catch-all, it’s something we can all get behind.
We’ll be using it for our logo and for our team name.”
The New England Patriots, who have played in the league since 2010, are also hoping to go in that direction.
“I’ve always thought of the Red Sox as the mascot for New England, but when I got to New England it was always going to be B-igg,” Brady said.
“It was always a B-g-B, it was B-C-B.
I’m always in the mood to go with that.”
Manfred, in a statement, said, The New Jersey team is in discussions with the NFL on how best to use its name.
“Our league and the league’s commissioner are committed to providing the best possible product for fans and teams, and our commissioner, Rob Manfield, has been instrumental in helping us achieve that goal,” the statement read.
“As we work to ensure that all fans have a seamless experience on the field, our fans will always have access to the most complete and authentic product possible.
We will continue to monitor the results of the NFL’s discussions with our teams, as we do with all teams, on how to best utilize B-GB-B and B-A-G as the official mascots of the New England Revolution.”
In a statement on their official website, the New York Red Bulls said, We will always be the home team of the Revolution.
The Revolution will continue its tradition of honoring the players and the Revolution organization by wearing its colors and using its logo as a logo.
We wish B-gb-B & g-a-G all the best.
We love playing in your name!
