A Guide to Recognizing Your Mascots – South Atlantic League

By: 04.08.11  •  16 Comments

For the discerning Minor League Baseball fan, the South Atlantic League is clearly the league of choice. You can quote me on that. Who cares if it is the only Low A league in that region? Who cares if their logo looks like it came straight from an early 90s PC game? I love the Myrtle Beach Leisure Suit Larries. Maybe Maniac Mansion has a team in the SAL. Who cares that their old logo had Jon Arbuckle on it because they made it with that old Garfield comic strip maker? SAL is the league of choice, even if a league named “SAL” would probably play better in New York.
The A Guide to Recognizing Your Mascots series continues today with the South Atlantic League, culturally appreciated by everyone south of Pennsylvania. I wouldn’t expect you Philadelphia Philistines to enjoy reading about golfing bees and transsexual crawdads.
Before you continue, make sure to catch up with leagues somehow even lower than this via the Guide to Mascots tag. Believe it or not, things are about to get worse. But at least we’ve got a good chance of making it through this league without running into any bears.
