This season, the Giants mascot Lou Seal went where no costumed fanatic has gone before: He attended his 1,051st straight home game, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Joel Zimei is the man behind the mask, and his achievement was widely lauded — the 49ers’ Sourdough Sam called Zimei the “Cal Ripken of mascots.” Ripken holds the MLB record for consecutive games played.
