Orbit is a large goofy alien that arrived at Isotopes Park for the team's inaugural season back in 2003. This bright orange, yellow, and red guy landed late one night in centerfield and has made Isotopes Park his home ever since.
Standing at about 6'5" (give or take four inches for his antennae) and weighing over 300 lbs, this jolly giant is hard not to notice. His floppy ears, friendly eyes, and long snout gives him the appearance of a dog while his large belly makes him look like a stuffed bear. Fans are always confusing him with one or the other, but fans love him no matter what he is.
Although he is large, Orbit loves to play all sorts of games. Some of his favorite include tag, hide-and-go-seek, checkers, football, wrestling and of course baseball. He loves to climb on jungle gyms and slide down slides; especially in the Fun Zone at Isotopes Park. Running is one of his very favorite things to do although it makes him very tired after he's done. You can also see him running the bases during an Isotopes game!
Orbit can be seen all over Albuquerque at the various appearances he does throughout the year. He has been in parades, at birthday parties, schools, community events and lots of other places to make people's day. At his appearances, people can't help but laugh at his antics and his clumsy nature.
If you see Orbit walking around Albuquerque make sure to say hi, he wants to meet you. Orbit is a creature full of love and joy for everyone. His only wish is to make you laugh and create memories that you will have for a lifetime.
