Evan Gattis: El Oso Blanco's Fan Club is Quickly Spreading, Rivaling Previous Ones Like the Chefs and Hot Dogs [GIF]

By Michael Shamburger

Evan Gattis, aka El Oso Blanco or The White Bear, has a rapidly growing fan club, and they like to dress up in polar bear costumes. Gattis hit his 6th home run of the season Tuesday to help the Braves beat the Rockies and improve to 15-5, best record in the Majors.

If you thought the polar bear costume shtick was strange, Braves fans have a rich history of dressing up as chefs, hot dogs, and cans to support their favorite players.
