Kalamazoo's Baseball team needs a name for its mascot

The new mascot for the Kalamazoo Growlers.
The new mascot for the Kalamazoo Growlers.

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Kalamazoo’s new Baseball Team, the Growlers have been working with the public to find a name for its mascot, a bear, or more accurately a man in a cartoon bear outfit.

They have poured through hundreds of names and relied on the public to narrow the list to a final two.

And the finalists are ”Barley” or “Burp”.

Both are words that start with a “B” so they will sound good with "Bear" and have something vaguely to do with the local craft beer business.

Tonight’s unveiling will take place at the Radisson downtown from 6 to 8 p.m.
