MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — When it comes to mascots, they just don’t come much more lovable than T.C. Bear, and now the rankings (cough) bear that out.

A Play USA survey of approximately 2,000 MLB fans asked them to rank every official mascot on a scale of 1 to 5.

The results placed T.C. Bear fourth among all mascots, with only the Chicago Cubs’ Clark the Cub, the Detroit Tigers’ PAWS, and the Colorado Rockies’ Dinger ranking higher. The Baltimore Orioles’ Oriole Bird rounded out the top five.

Ranking last out of 27 mascots was the Cleveland Indians’ Slider, followed by the San Diego Padres’ Swinging Friar and the Miami Marlins’ Billy the Marlin.
