Arizona Diamondbacks Add Luchador Mascot, Which Is Way Better Than Most MLB Mascots

The Arizona Diamondbacks announced that they're adding a luchador as an official mascot of the team, and some people are poking fun at the move, naturally.

We're not sure if you've taken a look at the mascots around Major League Baseball recently, but a Mexican wrestler in a lucha libre mask is way better than most of these things.

Really, take a look at some of these:

  • A very hairy devil ray

  • A purple dinosaur

  • An obese fish with arms

  • This green thing

  • This green thing

  • An animal that's not even marginally relevant to the area

  • The National Audubon Society

  • Just some guy with a baseball for a head

  • Nothing

See, it could be much worse.
