The Mascot Hall of Fame, formally “The Mascot Hall of Fame Interactive Children’s Museum,” is a sports mascot hall of fame in North America. David Raymond, the original Phillie Phanatic from 1978 to 1993, founded it. It began as an online-only hall, with an annual induction ceremony in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. However, Raymond’s mascot company signed a memorandum of understanding with the City of Whiting, Indiana, in September 2014 to create a permanent Mascot Hall of Fame on the south shore of Lake Michigan. The museum officially opened on December 26, 2018.
Mascots are inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame each year by the voting membership and an executive committee comprised of performers, sports executives, and other mascot community members. Mascots are nominated, and the Executive Committee chooses six finalists in each category to be placed on the ballot for consideration. A public online vote contributes a percentage to the final tally. In 2006, the Hall of Fame added a new category to honour college mascots.
