Move over, Raymond. There is a new Tampa Bay Rays mascot in town.
On Sunday, the team introduced a new mascot at Tropicana Field: DJ Kitty, who gained fame in 2010 after starring in viral videos that aired on the Rays JumboTron.
The hip-hop feline's first public appearance seemed to go over well, judging by the crowd's reaction. I mean, what's not to like about a super-sized cat who dons an even bigger gold necklace?
Don't worry about Raymond, though. He will remain the team's primary mascot, although he he now has to share the spotlight with DJ Kitty.
The news comes just days after Raymond caught some grief for holding up a rather controversial sign. The team has since apologized, but this question has to be asked, is the timing of DJ Kitty's unveiling pure coincidence or not?
