Garrison Squeallor
Meet Garrison Squeallor, the new 2007 mascot for the St. Paul Saints baseball team. "Garrison Keillor is a legend in this area and this is the highest honor the Saints could bestow upon him," said Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Derek Sharrer.

"I'm honored to have a pig named for me," said Keillor. "I love the story from a few years back about the opposing batter who came to the plate and saw the pig trotting up with the fresh balls in his pocket and the batter complained to the umpire." (a player from an opposing team was offended by the pig delivering baseballs to the umpire, turned and said, "That is so bush league," and the ump said, "This is the bush leagues.")

Garrison Squeallor was raised and chosen by Dennis and Marilyn Hauth, who have supplied all 15 mascots to the Saints. He is currently eating and and learning how to walk on a leash -- and eventually will be learning some tricks -- and no doubt looking forward in meeting his namesake!
