There are thirty M.L.B. teams but only two good mascots: Mr. Met and the Phillie Phanatic. Mr. Met is credited with being the first live-action, costume-wearing mascot in baseball, having made his début in 1964, when the Mets moved into Shea Stadium and were not above engaging in a bit of carnival nonsense to win new fans. He makes perfect surreal sense: a humanoid with the head of a baseball.
