A settlement today between the Phillies and the Phillie Phanatic co-creators allows the #Phillies to use the original design of the Phanatic again, if they choose.

Our long national nightmare is over: the Phillies own the rights to the Phanatic once again, meaning they can use the original version of him instead of the slightly altered version used the past few years.
He has evolved, but clearly hasn't matured. pic.twitter.com/Tmo5jHNQOB

I always thought this was a big fuss about nothing given the minuscule differences, but nonetheless it is good to most likely have the OG Phanatic back if the Phillies choose to do so. Go Phils. Please sign some relievers.
