The Braves unveiled Blooper, their new mascot, to fans during 2018 Chop Fest on Saturday at SunTrust Park.
The Braves made a presentation out of it for the kids in the front row. Blooper come out of the “Character Builder 3000” machine after a scientist created it with the help of two young guests from the crowd.
Blooper has some semblance to the Phillie Phanatic, one of the most recognizable mascots in sports. Though he's lacking the bells and whistles.
Braves center fielder Ender Inciarte got to “start” the machine to bring Blooper to life. Fans were able to meet and interact with current and former Braves players throughout the day, as well as Blooper after the presentation.
