Thoroughly enjoyed The Mascots of 1911. A magical time when baseball was king and superstition was rampant. "Mascots" takes the unusual perspective of two men, largely forgotten and the role they played in helping lead their teams to the World Series. Could a colourful tie really determine the outcome of the Fall Classic? How legendary managers, John McGraw and Connie Mack treated their mascots and how it evoked the age old question of good versus evil.

In a game steeped in history, this was a story waiting to be told.
