CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Homer the Dragon needs your help!
Homer, the mascot for the Charlotte Knights, has been selected as a mascot for consideration to the National Mascot Hall of Fame.
Homer, if won, would be the first Minor Leaguer inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame!
"Homer does over 200 appearances a year that span from visits to the Levine Children's Hospital in Uptown Charlotte to television interviews to Miracle League games and various corporate functions," the Mascot Hall of Fame website reads.
Back in March of 2021, Homer helped put out a fire in a flower bed near Truist Field and Romare Bearden Park. If that's not enough to win, what is?
