Sherman was born fifteen years ago somewhere near the Atlantic Ocean. After hatching he realized that he wasn't like all the other Shorebirds. He was seven feet tall! Sick and tired of called "Big Bird", "Behemoth" and "Big Foot", Sherman set out to find some real friends who would like him for who he really was, a seven foot, rather large-bellied Shorebird!

After brief stints in the circus, rodeo and Sesame Street, Sherman rolled into a Salisbury. Sherman immediately fell in love with the surroundings at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium and decided to call it home!

Ever since, Sherman has entertained fans of all ages during Shorebirds games and around the town on community appearances. He is by far the most popular bird in town!
