Savannah, GA – Gnate the Gnat, the Savannah Sand Gnats mascot for the past nine years, has won Round One voting against all the other South Atlantic League teams for the 2013 Mascot Mania competition. He now faces each winner of the other 13 leagues in the finals.

"I'm speechless (literally)!" Gnate says. "It's an honor to be voted the best mascot in the South Atlantic League. My fans have been relentless in voting. I hope to bring home the Championship title to Savannah and Sand Gnats fans worldwide!" 

Round Two of voting begins today and ends on August 8 at noon. All mascots begin Round Two with zero votes. The mascot with the most votes receives a Championship belt.
