Name the Hartford Yard Goats mascot

(WTNH)–Are you creative? Do you like mascots? Do you like coming up with names like ‘Wally’, ‘Phillie Phanatic’ and ‘Pucky?’

OK, let’s be more direct.

Have you always wanted to name a mascot?

Well if so, the Hartford Yard Goats are giving you just that chance. All you have to do is go to, and submit your name for what you think the new mascot should be called. (He’s already being described as a 7-foot furry goat).

The contest will end on July 21, and the fan whose submission wins will receive two season tickets for the inaugural 2016 season. The name will be announced this fall.

Though many fans weren’t fond of the name when it was chosen back in March, the Yard Goats seem to be winning the PR battle of late.

The logo, released last week, got positive reviews and many fans told SportzEdge they were ready to buy the team’s sharp new hats. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
