Minor league mascot unveiling season continues apace, with the latest entry coming from the Stockton Ports, California League affiliate of the Oakland A’s:
The Ports new logos honor Stockton’s heritage as the largest in-land port in California and the Asparagus Capital of the World. A new character, 5 O’clock Dock, is the centerpiece of the identity, brandishing his baseball tattoos and asparagus club. Navy, Shipyard Gray and Asparagus green make up the club’s new alternate colors. The Ports are the first professional sports team to use Asparagus green.
Really? The first? That I find shocking.
