Buffalo Bisons mascot Celery retired with much fanfare at the end of last season, his absence leaving a huge hole in the outfield, if you will. On a rainy opening day, the Bisons announced the new WCC mascot -- Carrot -- giving new meaning to WCC (which I guess now stands for Wing, Cheese, Carrot). You can follow Carrot on Twitter here.

Celery told the Buffalo News last season, "Have you ever known a vegetable to lie?" Celery joked. "Honestly, I think this is just the right time for me. The desire to compete will always be a part of who I am, but being able to sit back and enjoy future WCC Races as well as fun-filled days and nights at the ballpark by relaxing along with Bisons fans, that sounds pretty good to me!
