Chicago Cubs new mascot 'Clark' will be unveiled tonight at a visit to the Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center's pediatric development center.
It is an historic move by the storied franchise. Joa, the great-grandbear of Clark, was the original live bear mascot in 1916.
The ball club say that their new mascot will not toss T-shirts and hot dogs into the stands at Wrigley Field in between innings. Clark will instead welcome fans outside the field pre-game.
Clark is hoped to become a champion for charity missions, which target improvements in health and fitness, as well as education for children.
As opposed to other mascots across the league, Clark aims to be more respectful of the game that's in progress, with his main aim to engage with young fans.
The mascot will even help children run the bases post-game on family Sunday's. One thing is for sure, it's certainly a cute mascot.
