Red Sox mascot Wally the Green Monster gets a little sister

Wednesday January 6th, 2016

The Boston Red Sox unveiled a new mascot on Tuesday, introducing the world to Tessie, Wally the Green Monster’s little sister.

No one is really sure why the Red Sox felt they needed two mascots, but fans don’t seem to be too happy about Tessie trying to follow in her big brother’s footsteps.

Watch Tessie’s big debut below. Or save yourself the three minutes and twenty seconds and, you know, don’t. Your call.
