'Good Morning America' bestows the honor of 'best mascot in baseball' on the Phillie Phanatic

GMA picks Phanatic as best baseball mascot

After an epic, 14-inning Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday, to say that the Mets and Royals are evenly matched would be an understatement. Both teams notched 11 hits and committed one error in the game, which the Royals won, 5-4, on Eric Hosmer's walk-off sacrifice fly.

And if that wasn't enough to prove just how perfectly these teams match up, here comes a report that mascots representing both franchises were named to "Good Morning America's" list of the best mascots in baseball.

Host Lara Spencer and Co. braved the cold in New York to reveal the list of baseball's best mascots on Tuesday. Holding down the No. 5 spot were Mr. Met and Mrs. Met. The latter was on hand for the presentation of the list. Royals mascot Sluggerrr came in at No. 4, but the top mascot in all the land according to "Good Morning America" is ...

The Phillie Phanatic.


And it's easy to see why when all the Phanatic does is dress like he's in GQ, dance like no one's watching, and give back to the community. On Tuesday afternoon, the Phanatic got all dressed up and made an appearance at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to host a Halloween party for kids battling cancer and other serious illnesses.
