2022: Philadelphia Voted Phillie Phanatic Best Mascot!
This year, we’re all Phillie Phanatics, but when it comes to being the biggest fan in Philadelphia, this is a no brainer. Born in the Galapagos Islands, the Phanatic has been the Phillies MVP for 45 years. The Phillies were one of the best teams in Major League Baseball this year, but even when the Phillies are at the bottom of the division, we still have the greatest mascot, not just in Philly but in the country. The Phanatic attends all home games and makes the baseball fans’ experience better. Whether he’s annoying the visiting team, cruising the outfield in his ATV, or getting into shenanigans with Phillies fans, it’s clear why the Phanatic is the greatest mascot.

Gritty is the beloved official mascot for the Philadelphia Flyers National Hockey League team. A 7-foot-tall furry orange creature with googly eyes who wears Flyers gear and has been delighting audiences since his debut in September of 2018, Gritty allegedly emerged after construction at the Wells Fargo Center, the Flyers’ home arena, disturbed his secret hideout. Gritty is now an internet sensation who has made many media appearances. He is a fixture at Philadelphia Flyers games where he mans the T-shirt cannon and amuses the crowd with his humorously unpredictable antics. His favorite things include hot dogs, silly string, and shrines to Claude Giroux. To learn more about Gritty, visit the official National Hockey League website!
