Ashwaubenon, Wis.-April 13th, 2019. The Green Bay Booyah Baseball Club have announced the name and look of their new mascot! Rocky Bal-Booyah was introduced to fans on Saturday, April 13th at the Ashwaubenon Branch of the Brown County Library.
Wearing a brand new Booyah baseball home jersey, Rocky Bal-Booyah greeted fans for the first time. Throughout the morning Rocky took part in arts and crafts with fans, colored with kids, took photos with all of his new friends, partook in story time, and gave out samples of Booyah from The Booyah Shed. On top of that, Rocky chose eight winners for door prizes at the event. The prizes were donated by the Green Bay Booyah, the Ashwaubenon Branch of the Brown County Library, the Village of Ashwaubenon, and more!
The name Rocky Bal-Booyah originated from a suggested fun, play on words from the name of the famous boxer, Rocky Balboa, of the Rocky film series. Balboa’s fierce, strong, and courageous personality in the series was one of the deciding factors in naming the Booyah mascot after him. Adding lib to the name Rocky Balboa to make it Rocky Bal-Booyah was also a fun way to incorporate the new team name into his identity.
