The Phillies are in the middle of a lawsuit regarding the Phanatic, so instead of waiting for the lawsuit to end, they took it upon themselves to change up his look.
There were rumors flying that he would be a RED color (pictures made the rounds on Sunday on social media), but it turns out he is still green with some tweaks.
According to NBC Sports Philadelphia:
The changes, though, aren't too significant. If you're a die-hard, you'll probably notice several of the differences, but all fans will still recognize our jolly ol' fella from the Galapagos Islands.
The snout is smaller and a bit of a different shape. The tail is longer with a different color at the end. New shoes and socks. New scales(?) on the arms. And it looks like he’s seeing a new optometrist.
