Homer and Player appearances


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 bron to entertain. The Peoria Chiefs became fans of his antics at the firehouse after recieving an "Anonymous" audtion tape in the mail. The Chiefs reached our to the firehouse and adopted Homers 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, action on field/ and spending time with the players.
