Pit Bulls have been military mascots, but many people don’t realize how popular they once were as sports team mascots.
The Bulldogs woman’s basketball team of 1907-1908 brought their pit bull mascot for their team photo. Just like the men’s basketball team of 1908. Both dogs feature a fancy, spiked collar.
Basketball teams weren’t the only sport that featured the beloved pitbull mascot. Pit bulls have been the mascot for baseball and football teams, to include the New Orleans VooDoo arena football team.
