Name the South Bend Cubs' official mascot

It's time to choose the name of the South Bend Cubs' official mascot!

“We're thrilled to welcome our new team mascot to town,” said Joe Hart, President of the South Bend Cubs. “He's a young, friendly cub himself who can't wait to interact with other young South Bend Cubs fans. He just needs a name. We could really use the fans' help in coming up with a good one because he's going to be the greatest ambassador for the team we have at Four Wind's Field.”

The person whose mascot name is chosen will receive two tickets to the season opener and the first hug from the new mascot.

The team wants fans to know Swoop isn't going away.

“Swoop is still here and will continue to make regular appearances at Four Winds Field,” said Andrew Berlin, owner of the South Bend Cubs. “He hasn't flown the coop. We know how much kids love him, my kids do too!”
