The Springfield Jr. Blues have been a mainstay in the Springfield, IL area for the last 27 seasons, but it’s arguable that the face of our franchise is our lovable mascot, Gilly! Gilly is named after the Illinois state fish, the Bluegill, and calls Lake Springfield home.
With enthusiasm, passion, and pure excitement, Gilly greets all fans as they enter “The Nelly”. Don’t be alarmed by the bells and whistles of “Gilly’s Fish Tank” located behind the Merchandise Table, the loud noises help Gilly focus on cheering on the Jr. Blues!
Be aware: If you’re posing for a picture at one of our games, Gilly is known to photobomb any and all pictures taken at the games. If you spot Gilly in any of your pictures, tag us on social media!
