This day in baseball: Souki

On April 4, 1978, the Montreal Expos unveiled their new mascot.  The mascot, named Souki, wore an Expos uniform below a giant baseball head with antennae.  However, after just one season, the Souki’s rights would be sold for a mere $50.00, after proving unpopular with the fans due to his strange looks and quirky behavior.

    I have to admit I don’t remember it, which seems to be a good thing.

  2. Aww, he’s sorta weird-cute. $50? I would of snapped up the rights to Souki in a heartbeat. I don’t know what I would have done with him … but for $50, I’d think of something!

    • I was just imagining him as a Halloween costume. Can you imagine the looks on kids’ faces when you answer the door holding a bowl of candy and wearing that outfit?
