"It is common for ferrous materials to be highly magnetic," said Director of Community Relations Sarah Marten, "so we feel fairly certain that this name will stick!"
Ferrous can be described as a portly, affable IronPig wearing the IronPigs home uniform and jersey number 26 – the atomic number for Iron (Fe). He made his first public appearance on November 17 during an Open House at Coca-Cola Park.
Dancing Homer did not wear a number, but I presume it would have been 92 or 94.
Five-year old Kylie Shimkus of Easton, PA, was chosen among the 32 "PorkChop" entries in a fan contest to pick the mascot name for the IronPigs. Kylie will still receive her prizes.
