The Syracuse SkyChiefs have announced that Scooch, the team mascot, has been placed on the 1-Day Mascot Disabled List.

Scooch will be in uniform for Friday’s game but will be unable to walk through the stands or do his patented back-flips due to injury. Scooch will be on the concourse near the SkyChiefs souvenir store signing autographs.

“The injury occurred in the distal end of the proximal phalanx of Scooch’s great right toe with associated hallux valgus,” diagnosed SkyChiefs Certified Athletic Trainer Jon Woodworth. “Scooch is scheduled for an MRI on Monday and is day-to-day.”
