My name is ROCKO and I am the newest member of the Bowie Baysox family! I am so excited to be here with my newest pal Louie and all of his friends, fans and Kids Club Members! Louie has told me SO much about the Baysox and all of you who come out to Baysox games and I am so excited to be a part of the fun and excitement!

Let me tell you a little about how I came to become part of the Baysox family:

In 2011, the Bowie Baysox partnered with the Chesapeake Bay Trust to raise awareness about the Chesapeake Bay. The CBT is the only nonprofit, grant-making organization that is dedicated to sparking on-the-ground change for the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries in Maryland.

From this partnership a brand new "Pitching Fish" alternative (third) logo was created. This new logo is a cross between a Rockfish and an Oyster Toad Fish which are both fish that thrive in a healthy Chesapeake Bay.

During the 2011 season the Baysox held a "Name The Fish" contest to give our new logo a name. Over 1,500 entries were submitted, and one name was selected. ROCKO became the new name of this fish and it embodies the tough, winning attitude that will one day bring an Eastern League Championship to Bowie!

You see...I, Rocko was the inspiration behind the Baysox alternative black and teal jerseys that bear my image and that all of the guys on the team wear during our Friday night home games. I feel really special that the team wears a jersey that has me on it because I know Louie has been here a long time and hasn't been on a jersey yet. Louie told me that he is all in favor of the team wearing the special jerseys with me on them, so I feel a lot better about that.

I look forward to meeting all of you during the season. I will also be making some appearances out in the community, so if you see me, please come say hi to me and the Baysox staff that will be with me. I know I can't wait to cheer on the team and helping to energize all of you during home games with the hope of bringing home an Eastern League Championship!

Oh, I almost forgot, a lot of people have asked me if I am replacing one can replace Louie! He will be with the Baysox for a LONG time. I am just here to help Louie and work with him to bring as much fun and excitement to the ballpark and Bowie Baysox Baseball!
