So baseball may be returning regardless of the corona virus but one of the most important pieces of the franchise will be missing. This year the Phillie Phanatic will not be able to be on the field during the potential 2020 season. WTF!! I understand it because the Phanatic is a fan hype man but I think it’s bullshit. They could have found a role for the worlds best mascot during this pandemic.
This is the first time since 1978 that the Phillies will be Phanaticless. Yes, the Phanatic is mainly for the fans, but he is loved by the players as well, especially Bryce Harper. Having a season without him would be detrimental.
Yooooo, John Kruk is FED UP with the Phanatic. 😂 pic.twitter.com/yCayd7L8y0— Cut4 (@Cut4) June 11, 2019

The Phanatic may only be a mascot but the Phillies need him!
