Disco Turkeys invite public to suggest names for mascot

The Carolina Disco Turkeys are excited to announce that we’ll have a stunningly beautiful live mascot representing our team this season.

As part of a partnership with Tiger World, a non-profit animal sanctuary and educational center in Rockwell, NC, we are adopting a disco turkey -- referred to by unenlightened individuals as a peacock -- to cheer on our baseball team from their center.

For our new feathered teammate’s well-being, he won’t be attending any games this year. However, our team plans to pay him visits throughout our inaugural season, which begins this weekend. We encourage fans passing through nearby Rowan County this year to drop in and pay our new friend and his pals a visit and let them know how our team is doing on the diamond.

Our new disco turkey is an Indian Blue adult male, clearly evident by his plumage, and is known to be the coolest bird at Tiger World and in the state.

We invite the public to suggest names for our disco turkey by Tuesday, May 25 at 3 pm at our name suggestion form. Then, we’ll put finalists we pick from those suggestions up for an online vote for fans to select at our team’s social media pages. If your name suggestion gets picked, we'll give you four tickets to a Carolina Disco Turkeys home game and have you throw out a first pitch. We'll also provide a family pass for you and your family for a visit to Tiger World.

To plan a visit to Tiger World or learn more about its Wild Adoption program, fans can visit tigerworld.us. 

Single-game tickets for the Disco Turkeys are on sale now. The team's first home game is June 4 against Martinsville at Truist Stadium.
