#Shortstops: A Dandy of a Mascot
While mascots are a welcome part of the stadium experience for many, not all fans love mascots (like Mets star Noah Syndergaard, who has Masklophobia).
It was clear that Dandy was not being well received by the pinstripe faithful, nor by management.
When the contract between Acme Mascots and the Yankees expired, it was not renewed – and the Yankees’ foray into the world of mascots came to a close.
However, thanks to a 2019 donation to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, prototypes of Dandy will be preserved for generations to come.
