    A Pig named Bud Squealig



    http://www.saintsbaseball.com/news/?id=4387

    May 11, 2006 - The new name of the St. Paul Saintsí 2006 mascot certainly has a baseball connection to it. Bud Squealig (in brown) was officially introduced today as part of the teamís Largest Game of Catch in downtown St. Paul. The pig will serve as the teamís official mascot for their first season in the American Association.

    The name was sent in by Mark Towne of Burnsville. It was chosen out of entries in a contest sponsored in part by Rake magazine. Bud succeeds Ham Solo, the 2005 mascot. ďHam ate himself out of a job,Ē said Derek Sharrer, Saintsí Vice President/General Manager. ďIt happens to the best of them. Iím looking forward to seeing young Bud do his stuff this season. Based on what I seen in spring training, he looks like a real up-and-comer.Ē

    Bud, who lives on a farm in Hudson, WI when he is not busy working Saintsí games, will handle many duties for the team, including bringing water and baseballs to the umpires during home games. His predecessorsí duties have ranged from leading a motorcycle pack into Midway Stadium for a pre-game ceremony to serving as a ringbearer at a wedding.

    Like the players, Bud practiced his trade at three preseason home games to prepare for the Midway Stadium regular season home opener on Monday, May 15 against St. Joseph at 7:05 p.m.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
