Homer & Player Appearances

Mascot & Player Appearance


Homer was born in a local firehouse in August 2007. Homer was destined to be a star. After watching his favorite movie Firehouse Dog, he knew he was born to entertain. The Peoria Chiefs became fans of his antics at the firehouse after receiving an "Anonymous" audition tape in the mail. The Chiefs reached out to the firehouse and adopted Homer as their new mascot in 2010 and the rest is history!

You can see Homer at every Chiefs game all summer long. Entertaining fans, taking pictures, acting on field, and spending time with the players.
