Southpaw - Director of Fun!

Southpaw was adopted from the Lynchburg Humane Society in January of 2017. With the legacy that his retiring predecessor left behind, Southpaw instantly had HUGE shoes to fill. Luckily for us, Southpaw has big feet....and awesome blue chucks! He has fit in puuurfectly here by adding to the excitement of Bank of the James Stadium. This lovable, green, giant can be seen dancing on dugouts, driving around on his four wheeler, entertaining birthday parties, taking photos with fans,and of course cheering on his number one team!

Outside of the stadium, you can see Southpaw making a difference and lending a hand in the community, hanging out with students during the Hillcats' Hit the Books Reading program,and volunteering for numerous non-profits. Southpaw graduated from Feline Training Academy and received a masters in Mascoting with a minor in Cathletics. Southpaw spends his free time watching Animal Planet and BASEBALL, hanging out at the scratch post with furry friends, and believe or not he is a pretty talented meowsician (he plays puurrcussion). Southpaw wants his fans to know that he thinks they are all PAWsome!**
