So here are some of the infamous shenanigans from our very own Bearcat Baseball team!



The line “I used to be carried in the arms of cheerleaders” is 100% true. 

The University of Cincinnati’s football team is unusual in that it has a human child as a mascot, rather than the usual over-sized elk or lion. At the start of each season, local families nominate their children to represent the team for that year. Being preternaturally cute, a four-year-old Matt won by a country mile. He was universally adored, and at the end of each game the cheerleaders would scoop him up for a celebratory lap of the field. 

Bonus fact: with young Matt as their mascot, the team had the most successful season in their entire history. 

Go Bearcats.
