Big League Stew - MLB

Looks like my Halloween plans just got a lot more expensive this year ...

Remember that inappropriate mascot? It’s up for bid on eBay

Yep, that's the controversial "sock" mascot that the minor league Amarillo Sox ordered earlier this year. The fact that it showed up looking a little too, uh, "enthused" disappointed the team's management, and officials quickly ordered another after the costume was mocked on several websites, including the Stew. They even issued a public apology to anyone who might have been offended.

But where there's a viral Internet hit, there's a way to make money, which is why the team now has the old costume listed on eBay with a starting price of $5,000 (and a buy-it-now price of $25,000!) The listing says that "a portion of the proceeds" will be donated to charity.

Might I suggest this one?
