The Charlottesville Tom Sox, a team in the Valley Baseball League, wants fans to cast their vote for the team’s new mascot.

The mascot options, which were also suggested by fans, include the Declaration of Independence, a mockingbird, a prairie dog, a tomcat and a sock monkey.

A Declaration of Independence mascot would be called Indy and would look like the bill from the “Schoolhouse Rock!” cartoon, and the tomcat would be a “cougar-like cat dressed up like Thomas Jefferson in colonial outfits,” according to the team’s website.

Fans can go to the Tom Sox website to cast their vote and view the description of each mascot. The voting ends January 22.

The Tom Sox home field is the C-VILLE Weekly Ballpark at Charlottesville High School.
