Astros’ mascot Orbit was a busy alien Cupid earlier this month with 4 DAYS of profit and buzz generating Valentines Deliveries. Orbit traveled around H-town with swag bags full of candy and love for fans, spending few minutes at each stop.
He also got some social media love from his visits, both from fans and featuring his drop in his IG Stories.
Mascots across the country have created these delivery programs to spread joy and often generate revenue or income.
We are currently working on a new PULSE article. These articles are quick trips around sports asking Game Operations personnel a topical question. We bulk the answers together to showcase what’s happening at different levels and sports.
In the article we will compile submissions from mascots and teams across the country with insight and tips on how to successfully make mascot deliveries. If you or your team makes any mascot deliveries (in-game, holiday or otherwise) we would LOVE to hear about it. The form just takes a few minutes and we will make sure you receive credit for your insight and submission. Thank you!
