Here in Aberdeen, Ferrous holds a special place in our hearts. Each and every one of us has a favorite Ferrous moment, from watching Ferrous soar across the dugouts, hug our youngest IronBirds fans, to my favorite, Ferrous streaking across the outfield.
This year, thanks to the help of our many fans, Ferrous won the coveted title of Best Mascot in the New York Penn League. Ferrous has worn his title with great pride. From wearing his championship belt during games, helping out in the office, and participating in local events, Ferrous has proudly represented his title.
Now Ferrous has his hopes on an even bigger prize, the MiLBY for Mascot Clip of the Year. The MiLBY’s are Minor League Baseball’s version of the Academy Awards. Ferrous has once again called upon the wonderful IronBirds fans to help bring this trophy home. Fans were able to vote for their favorite Mascot Clip of the Year, though voting is now closed. Ferrous has some tough competition including our good friend Rip Tide from the Oriole’s affiliate, the Norfolk Tides. Ferrous was nominated for the “Vote for Ferrous” video from his victorious Mascot Mania campaign. If you haven’t watched the video yet, take a few minutes out of your day to enjoy.
Results will be announced this Thursday, October 31st. Make sure to check out http://www.milb.com/news/awards/y2013/ to see if Ferrous won the award!
