When she's not working at the ballpark, she's likely at another, cheering on her son, Fisher.







Sharky
Engineer of Laughter and Cheer

Sharky

His boating license says his name is "Sherman G. Sharkington", but he'd like it if you called him Sharky. Born in 1997, Sharky enters his 22nd season with the Sharks organization. Sharky loves to entertain the crowd and has promised to not bite anyone, unless they're wearing the wrong colors. When not at the ballpark you can find Sharky catching some waves at one of the nearby beaches.
