The Braves introduced Blooper, their new mascot, at Chop Fest on Saturday at SunTrust Park.

Blooper, who resembled a more-tamed version of the Phillie Phanatic, popped out of a machine to the applause of a mostly young crowd. It held a meet and greet with fans afterwards.

Reactions to the latest addition to the Braves organization have not been overly positive.
