Slider has been the iconic mascot for the Rochester Honkers since the 1997 season. Known for exciting the crowd at Mayo Field, Slider has become famous for his dance moves at the start of every home game, and leading fans in the “YMCA”! Slider keeps busy helping out with the on-field promotions, and working the crowds, but will always find time to spend with the younger fans and sign autographs. Before each game Slider likes to stretch behind home plate, wave to the fans, and welcome the Dream Team of the Night. In the offseason, Slider stays in mascot shape by running marathons and lifting weights.
