We're happy to formally introduce Toasty, the new Minor League mascot/Guy Fieri doppelganger
Back in November, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox announced that they were changing their name to the Rocky Mountain Vibes. It was a catchy new nickname, but what caught our eyes the most was the look of the mascot, Toasty. Somehow, he was Food Network star Guy Fieri incarnate:
Saturday offered our first glimpse at what Toasty would look like in the flesh. Would the Fieri comparisons continue to ring true?
The Vibes knew we were all on the edge of our seats, desperately seeking the answer. So, they teased us.
Only one more sleep until we get to introduce Toasty. We'll see you at the @ppymca (Pikes Peak YMCA) facility on First & Main tomorrow morning. Event starts at 9am, with the unveil starting at 10:30am. If you can't make it, we'll be streaming it live on Twitter, Facebook, and IG! pic.twitter.com/GXuQG0jOun— Vibes Baseball (@VibesBaseball) April 26, 2019
Rude. But we respect the hustle.
At last, Saturday came. With a live feed ready at the go, the Vibes unveiled Toasty ...
... and he was everything we dreamed he would be.
That is 100 percent Guy Fieri, and now, everyone knows it.
Spot the difference. pic.twitter.com/eBUbik65Cc— Minor League Baseball (@MiLB) April 28, 2019
If the Vibes don't rename themselves the "Flavor Town Vibes" at some point this season, then what has this all been about? Make it happen. Please.
