The Chicago Cubs have been around for more than a century, but the 2014 season will be the first time in modern history that the franchise will have a mascot.

Some teams come up with random mascots, but the Cubs are sticking with what makes sense—a cub.
For those wondering, the mascot got its name from Clark and Addison, which is the intersection where Wrigley Field is located.

The Chicago Sun-Times is not a fan of the mascot.
---End of Update---
Clark is a kid-friendly mascot who wears a backwards hat. Many mascots jump on top of dugouts and get fans fired up. Don't expect that from Clark. He will be used mainly as a greeter, according to Muskat.
