Ham fighting for ham with ham

Every time I’m close to entirely losing faith in humanity, someone comes out of the woodwork to restore hope.

In this case, that someone was reader A.J., who created this new proposed mascot for the Nippon Ham Fighters, the Japanese baseball team that recently celebrated Tsuyoshi Shinjo.
