2017 was quite the year for the Aberdeen IronBirds. Rarely, if ever, do you see a season begin, AND end with rainout games, but here in Aberdeen we saw both. This year we had one of the better teams in recent memory-only missing the playoffs by 2.5 games and finishing the year with 41 wins-tied for the most wins in the club's history.
Each season, the IronBirds players are fortunate enough to live with local families who house them and provide them with meals during their season. The host family serves as a crucial support system for the players as they kick off their young careers
When you think of the IronBirds, what two big, loveable, wacky creatures come to mind? None other than Ferrous and Ripcord. You've seen them at every game, maybe even taken a picture with them or gotten your hat 'eaten'. But have you ever thought about what goes into being the beloved mascots of our team?
