Meet Tommy: the fun, family friendly furry of Staten Island FunPark

Who doesn't love a good mascot? They're great at baseball games, for photo-ops at your favorite amusement park, and wonderful sources of entertainment for all ages. Mascots are also considered to be tokens of good luck, inspiring crowds into moments of camaraderie over a shared love of that which the mascot proudly represents. We at Staten Island FunPark are excited to have Tommy the Beaver as our fun-furry mascot, showing off his love for Go Karts, Mini Golf, and the Batting Cages.

If you've been to Staten Island FunPark, you can't miss Tommy the Beaver's excited smile as you drive into the park:

He's clearly excited for you to enjoy his favorite attractions. For a fun comparison and #flashbackfriday, check out one of Tommy's earlier iterations:

sifp-tommy-first-iterationPretty cool to see how much Tommy's evolved since his original design! While the differences are quite notable, I personally am happy to see that Tommy's original fierce eyebrows have made it onto the final iteration, revealing how seriously he takes his Go Karting:

Our friends at the Staten Island Yankees know exactly how important mascots are in exciting a crowd.  Meet Scooter, Red, and Effa of the SI Yankees and be sure to stop by one of their upcoming games to say hello!

Scooter the Holy Cow

Scooter the Holy Cow, inspired by Phil Rizzuto and his famous tagline, has served as the team's primary mascot since the inaugural season in 1999. Scooter can be found entertaining fans in the stands and on the field all game long. While the team is on the road, Scoots grazes on the outfield grass, keeping it in perfect playing condition for the Baby Bombers. Scooter spends the off season making visits in Staten Island, keeping the Staten Island Yankee spirit alive across the city. Make sure to follow Scooter the Holy Cow on Facebook and Twitter, and if you're 12 year or younger, join Scooter's Kids Club!

The brother of Scooter the Holy Cow, Red debuted as the team's secondary mascot in 2003 when Scooter went to the disabled list for a brief stint. Red can be found pulling pranks around the ballpark during the summer and hanging out with his buddies in the Pinstripe Patrol.

Effa

The former Newark Bears mascot, named after Effa Manley (the first woman inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame), was adopted by the Staten Island Yankees following the closing of the Newark Bears. Effa can be found at the ballpark making friends with her new Staten Island fans and reuniting with her pals from New Jersey.
