Champ will have company


The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders will soon announce two mascots that will join Champ for the 2013 season. The club needs help in naming Champ’s pals, and the RailRiders are asking local elementary schools for their best ideas on the nicknames of the two new mascots.


The “Name the Mascots” contest, which runs until to March 15, will introduce a furry porcupine and a 9-foot-tall superhero as the latest additions to the RailRiders’ mascot crew. Champ’s new furry friends will debut their wacky antics at elementary school assemblies. After the mascots entertain the crowd, kids in attendance will have the chance to answer three questions about each mascot. Those questions will flesh out each mascot’s name, where he came from and who his friends are.


Schools interested in having the two mascot additions perform at their assembly should contact community relations manager Ryan Beardsley by emailing him at rbeardsley@swbrailriders.com, or by calling 969-2255, ext. 3140. The new mascots will be available after the assembly to pose for pictures and interact with fans.
