It's not even close.
Last night, video circulated of the New York Mets mascot giving the middle finger to a fan. You know who wouldn't do that? The Phillie Phanatic.
Complete coverage of the Fightin' Phils and their MLB rivals from NBC Sports Philadelphia.
The Phanatic is the best mascot in baseball.
He's the best mascot ever.
He went to jury duty to make the day better for these Philadelphians.
He befriended an Ewok on Star Wars Night.
He handles babies with great care.
He has great manners.
Late night hosts attempt to recreate him.
Other late night shows are obsessed with him.
He got into the Pokemon Go craze.
…and he took all these great photos with his fans.
The @Phillies may not have won today, but getting a kiss from this guy then snapping this photo made my day at the Ballpark. #BestMascotEver pic.twitter.com/MenlHHuR5o— SafetySuit SuperFan (@theKLK) May 29, 2017
With the video of Mr. Met, today felt like a good day to talk about the best mascot in baseball. The Phillie Phanatic.
