Mascot Uncle Slam Placed on 60-Day DL

P-Nats Look for New Mascot in Wake of Injury

July 6, 2012 11:19 AM

The Potomac Nationals have announced the following roster move:

Mascot Uncle Slam placed on 60-Day DL (retroactive to 7/4)

That currently puts the P-Nats at zero mascots which is under the Carolina League minimum of one mascot. Uncle Slam will miss the remainder of the season due to the fire at the Pfitz and is recovering but will be fully healthy for the 2013 season. Expect Uncle Slam in 2013 to be new and improved at the Pfitz with a brand new attitude!

With Potomac under the Carolina League minimum of one mascot, the P-Nats are looking for help from any team or organization that is willing to let Potomac adopt their mascot. Any mascot willing to sign on for a two-month contract with the Potomac Nationals will be handsomely rewarded with baseball bucks, Chilli's Lemonade, Chick-Fil-A sandwiches and the chance to watch fireworks every Saturday night.

"Uncle Slam is a huge part of the Pfitz experience," says General Manager Josh Olerud. "While we have to wait for the 2013 season for him to be 100% and back in the fold, we need someone to fill that void we are missing in our lineup."

If you or your organization is willing to lend a mascot, please send an e-mail to
