Yes, It’s Hot In Here: Former New York Mets Mascot AJ Mass

Encore: February 26, 2015

AJ Mass grew up walking distance from Shea Stadium, destined to be a New York Mets fan. What he didn’t expect to happen was eventually fitting into the Mr. Met suit, and becoming the baseball team’s storied mascot. Now having years to reflect on his and other mascots’ experiences, he’s written a mascot memoir, Yes, It’s Hot in Here: Adventures in the Weird, Wooly World of Sports Mascots. In this interview with Rafael Pi Roman, Mass lets us in on some not-so-glamorous secrets of this “weird, wooly world.”
