Lou Seal is the official mascot for the Columbus Clippers. Lou Seal grew up a huge baseball fan as his parents were originally from Alaska. He had heard stories about the Columbus Clippers, whose mascot, Captain Clipper, was planning for his retirement. Lou Seal left Alaska, headed across the United States until he hit the mighty Scioto River in Downtown Columbus, where he met Captain Clipper. Once Captain Clipper learned of Lou Seal's love of baseball, he selected Lou Seal as his successor, and put him through a rigorous training program to prepare him for his rookie season as a mascot. Lou Seal has been the Clippers mascot ever since that fateful day in the mid 1990's. Since taking over for Captain Clipper, Lou Seal has become a favorite of both kids and adults. Lou Seal loves baseball, as well as roaming the field at Huntington Park, cheering the Clippers onto victory. When the Clippers are on the road or away for the winter you can find Lou Seal at your favorite community or charity event. To book Lou Seal for your event or charity, please call (614) 462-5250 or write to Pat Thompson.

Krash is the krazy parrot who has been Lou Seal's First Mate since 2004. He comes from a long line of birds that have performed for baseball teams, and began training to become a mascot back when he was just a tiny chick. One day, as he was reviewing tape of mascots, he saw a performance of Lou Seal dancing on the dugout after the 7th inning stretch. He immediately became a fan of Lou Seal and the Clippers. Krash contacted and met up with Lou Seal and began taking pointers from the veteran mascot. Krash then moved to Columbus in April to be able to watch Lou Seal in person during the '04 season. On Opening Night, April 8, Krash received the letter he had been waiting for---it was finally his time to join the show! Lou Seal had written Krash, requesting help getting Clippers fans excited because he knew that 2004 was going to be a special year. Krash made a mad dash to the Coop and arrived just in time to make his grand debut, and at the end of the 1st inning, Lou Seal gave him his very own Clippers jersey to wear proudly during the season. Krash is now excited about learning all there is to know about being a Triple-A mascot and loves going on appearances when the team isn't playing at Huntington Park. To book Krash for your community event or charity please call (614) 462-5250 or write to Pat Thompson.
