The Arizona Diamondbacks have introduced a second mascot to their fanbase: the Diamondbacks Luchador, pictured above. In case you're unaware, a luchador is a masked Mexican pro wrestler. like Rey Mysterio Jr in the WWE. The D-Backs Luchador has apparently been doing some work with the team on more of an unofficial basis as judging from his Twitter account. The Luchador also noted that he won't be replacing current Diamondbacks mascot Baxter, and is just being added to the crew on an official basis. At the very least, it's a unique choice for a mascot...though the proliferation of lucha mask giveaways by southwestern teams in recent years is getting a little played out. I'm wondering how long this will end up lasting. On the bright side, at least it's not another mascot that has a baseball for a head. [follow]
