No... The Dodgers do not have a mascot - Thank Goodness. It was just a fan living out his/her furry fantasy at Dodger Stadium. (I can't believe I just wrote that.) From my understand, the bear was kicked out of the stadium. Mike Oz at Big League Stew has more. On a side note, I would be very unhappy if this was some planned stunt, and someone like Johnny Knoxville was in that bear suit.

"His emotions have been consistent the entire season," Ellis said. "That's a credit to him and the way he was raised and the way he was developed as a baseball player. You'd never know what the score is by his body language and the way he handles himself on the mound. That's the mark of a really mature pitcher who understands what his job is to do."
- ICYMI: Yesterday I shared some pics from Super Dodger Fan Fred from Florida of his incredible Dodger room and his Garage of Dreams. See that post here. You won't regret it.

- "Adrian's biggest fan? His 2-year-old daughter," via Joey Nowak at MLB.com.
"She comes to the games," Gonzalez said. "She's very active, from what I hear. She loves 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame,' she loves the wave. For the most part, she didn't cry when the crowd got excited, the loud noises, and she didn't fall asleep until after the game, so she enjoyed the whole time."
- Craig Muder at Cooperstown Chatter writes a great piece about MLB umpire Wally Bell, who passed away recently. RIP, Wally Bell.
