Mascot and logo

In the beginning, their logo was the Beer Barrel Man. This was very popular during 1940 and fans often confuse him with the current mascot of the team- Bernie Brewer. Both are not the same and there are different stories for them. The mascot Bernie Brewer has been named after Milt Mason who was an elderly 69-year-old fan of the team. In order to attract crowds to their early matches, he used to sit on the top of the scoreboard. He did this for 40 days and on the 40th day he slid down the rope however he sustained bad burns on his legs and arms. He expired after a long sickness and the team decided to style their official mascot after him. They named the mascot Bernie Brewer and today he is seen at stadiums with a companion called Bonnie Brewer. Besides the official mascot, the famous Sausage Race is also a crowd puller at matches.

Sandy Petrocelli says that the above are just some tales of his favorite team that he loves to share with like-minded fans. He always loves to hear these stories and pass them over to young fans as well!
