More SF Giants coverage from Sactown Sports

News broke Thursday afternoon that the SF Giants’ mascot will be heading to the Mascot Hall of Fame in the class of 2024. Lou Seal will be the second MLB mascot to be inducted this year (Orbit of the Houston Astros) and the fourth overall mascot in the 2024 class.

Lou Seal of the SF Giants has served as the team’s primary mascot since the 1997 season, initially introduced in 1996. His full name is Luigi Francisco Seal, paying homage to The Bay Area’s oceanic wildlife. He is also in reference to the San Francisco Seals, the ball club of the Pacific Coast league from 1903 to 1957.
