With the Dodgers AAA club now established in Oklahoma City there is one little thing left to do.
There must be a mascot, and we must name said mascot. After all, all minor league teams have one and the Dodgers branded club in the Midwest is no different.
But, what shall it be?
The Dodgers don't have a mascot in Los Angeles (unless you count those hideous bobblehead looking creatures) and the team name doesn't automatically provide any answers. So naturally, the Oklahoma City Dodgers decided to reach out to the fans for suggestions. They are asking all fans to make their submissions and I suggest that you head over there right now to lend a hand. Go here.
You've got until March 25th, so you'll have to act fast.
BTW, I initially came across this due to a reddit post by u/tacotcat. As one commenter stated, the graphic on the OKC site (that you can see above) appears to show a couple of guys in a pony outfit; which of course elicited the term "Brony." If you don't know what that is then you need to look it up. In fact, I did it for you. Go here for some photographs of what a "Brony" is. I promise you won't be disappointed.
With this all in mind, I will submit "Brony" as the male mascot name and "Pinkie Pie" as the female name. I understand that "Pinkie Pie" is a fun and energetic pony. (I swear I didn't know this before looking it up) If you'd prefer another "My Little Pony" character then you could do that. And if you don't know any of the characters names then there's a helpful wiki you can check out here. Of course, if you think I'm a crazy lunatic who should be ignored at all cost then you can submit any name you want.
