Best, Coolest (and Sometimes Scariest) Team Mascot

The Tucson Padres' Kino Bambino

There's a photo posted on the Tucson Weekly's daily dispatch, The Range (, of a kid racing around the Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium baseball field—either being chased by or winning a race with the Tucson Padres mascot, Kino Bambino. Kids being chased by priests, at least in this context, shouldn't raise any eyebrows—after all, this is baseball, America and fun.
