I hear the players in the locker room have their own motivation to keep the streak going.

sno man: Slider?!? Whar Wahoo? OWN IT, OR ALL THE WAY DITCH IT.


A few years ago I noticed that Indians personnel were wearing a red "I" where Chief Wahoo used to be. I thought that old mascot was being phased out, or at least downplayed. But it seems that I was wrong - checked out an Indians game the other day and there he was, as proudly displayed as ever.

Haven't we already decided that a hot dog is in fact a sandwich?

Slider has been the Phillie Phanatic style mascot for the team since the mid 90's.  Mainly because even then they realized a giant felt Chief Wahoo wouldn't be a good look.

It's no Youppi, but that's one weird-looking mascot. And a weird name too - there's no connection to the team or the city as far as I could tell. Although if you were to tell me that the Indians have a mascot named Slider, I would have thought it's a tribute to Willie Mays Hayes:
