This makes us giggle but we love it!  Gastonia’s professional baseball team revealed their new name and mascot this week and lets just say it is very unusual.

The Atlantic league team is now and forever more to be know as the Gastonia Honey Hunters and the mascot is ….the honey badger.  Yes!  No doubt inspired by that tenacious honey badger video that we were all obsessed with a couple of years ago.

Owner Brandon Bellamy says the honey badger embodies the spirit of the people of Gastonia, “fearless, determined and resilient”.  To learn more and to see the amazing log, check it out from Channel 9
