He's ferociously fun. He's the Sultan of Silly. It's…. Fungo the Fisher Cat!
Born in the forests north of New Hampshire's White Mountains, Fungo left his woodland home in late 2003 to make a name for himself in the big city. After a long float down the Merrimack River, the yet-to-be-named bundle of brown fur arrived in Manchester wide-eyed and bushy tailed. His timing was fortuitous; a new baseball team in town had chosen the name "Fisher Cats" and needed a mascot. One visit to historic Gill Stadium later and the Queen City had its cat.
When he's not making the fun "go" at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, catch Fungo on the banks of the Merrimack casting his line and soaking up some sun (in the summer), tobogganing in the White Mountains. Once winter hits, he retires to his workshop to start dreaming up new ways to entertain and inspire his friends and fans. He is adamant that a hot dog is a sandwich.
