Meet Clark – can he pitch?

This is Clark, the new Cubs mascot.

 

The Cubs have introduced the newest member of their organization.

Everyone, meet Clark. The new mascot.

According to a team press release, “Before and during games, Clark will greet fans as they enter Wrigley Field and stop by the Wrigley Field First Timers Booth to welcome new guests. On Family Sundays, he will help kids run the bases following the game. Most of the time, Clark will welcome fans to Clark’s Clubhouse at Wrigley Field, where families can make a special visit as they please.”

The idea of making the Cubs more fan-friendly is a good, I guess. Wrigley Field has the reputation of being the “World’s Largest Beer Garden,” so anything the team does to counter that can only help.

Unfortunately, Wrigley Field is the last place to take a kid to a ballgame. The seats are uncomfortable, the sound system is archaic to the point where you can’t understand anything the public-address announcer is saying, or figure out any of the between-inning music. And unlike the White Sox park, U.S. Cellular Field, there is no place for kids to participate in any interactive games or activities.

I imagine Clark will fill that void at least partially by welcoming kids into his clubhouse.

But my question is, can he give you 200 innings a year and spot his fastball, curve or slider?

Because that’s what you really need.
