When it comes to Major League Baseball mascots, sometimes it doesn’t take much for those crazy characters to make an impression on the city.
Reflecting back on simpler times, occasionally they might come up in conversations like “where are they now?” and “remember that mascot?” Often, I find myself saying that very same thing about one of the Blue Jays often overlooked mascots.
For this week’s Flashback Friday, we take a look back at one of the SkyDome’s forgotten mascots, Domer the Turtle.
Not much is known of Domer’s tenure as mascot for the Toronto Blue Jays, but I think he came in as one of the SkyDome’s mascot in 1989 and exited in 2004, when Rogers purchased the Blue Jays and bough the rights to the stadium.
