Justin Bieber, the Asheville Tourists’ unlikely, but lucky, mascot


Justin Bieber is a lucky mascot for the Asheville Tourists baseball team this season, reports Keith Jarrett of the Asheville Citizen-Times. Here’s a tidbit:

It all began as a joke early this season when the team began playing Bieber’s song “Never Say Never” in the clubhouse after every win.

As the wins piled up – the Tourists won the South Atlantic League’s Southern Division title in the first half with a 47-23 mark – the team adopted the song as its go-to tune.

Outfielder Tyler Massey bought the large poster cutout, and a new star was born.

“He’s become our mascot,” said outfielder Brian Humphries. “Sometimes we take him out to the dugout with us, put a jersey on him, and we take him on the road. He’s one of us.”

Can the Beebs take the Tourists all the way to a league crown? We’ll see. Meantime, check out Bieber on the cover of Rolling StoneAnd the 10 things EW says it learned about Bieber from his Rolling Stone interview.

I just ripped the cover off the new Rolling Stone and trashed it. So sick of him.
