Benny The Bull and Tommy Hawk are a couple new inductees to The Mascot Hall of Fame that is opening soon in Indiana.

The Mascot Hall of Fame was formerly an internet only situation up until now.  According to wikipedia,

Each year (beginning in 2005), mascots are elected into the Mascot Hall of Fame by the voting membership and an executive committee made up of performers, sports executives, and other individuals intimate with the mascot community. The mascots go through a nomination process that ends with the Executive Committee selecting six finalist in each category to be placed on the ballot for consideration. There is a public online vote that contributes a percentage of the final tally. In 2006, the Hall added a separate class to honor college mascots.

Benny The Bull (Chicago Bulls,) Tommy Hawk (Chicago Blackhawks,) Sluggerrr (Kansas City Royals) and the Nittany Lion (Penn State) are the 4 mascots that will be inducted.  That should happen early next year according to nwitimes.com,

They will be officially inducted during the grand opening of the Mascot Hall of Fame next year.

The Mascot Hall of Fame will be in Whiting, Indiana at the corner of Front Street and 119th.  Whiting is a very small town that sits on Lake Michigan about 30 minutes outside of Chicago and a little over 2 hours from Kalamazoo.

So far there are no Michigan based mascots in the Hall of Fame.  Which one of our mascots should be there?  Let us know in the facebook comments.
