TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

Inspired by suggestions from nearly 1,000 local children, the Delaware Blue Coats have endowed their new mascot with the name “Coaty,” a blue horse with a white nose, and introduced the basketball character to kids at the Delaware Children’s Museum on Saturday. The birthmark on his nose is, in fact, a map of the First State.

The Blue Coats play in the NBA G League as part of the Philadelphia 76ers franchise. All of the students who participated in the naming opportunity will be invited to a Blue Coats home game this season at the all-new 76ers Fieldhouse, which opens Wednesday, Jan. 23, when the team hosts the Memphis Hustle at 7:00 p.m.

Coaty’s rollout was accompanied with a back story provided by the Blue Coats that draws on unique Delaware colonial heritage. 

Delaware Founding Father Caesar Rodney’s equestrian hero serves the First State when he isn’t busy horsing around. Coaty proudly represents the Delaware Blue Coats as the team’s mascot, community ambassador and noble steed.
 
This high-energy horse is dressed to compete in his authentic Blue Coats basketball uniform, with custom kicks that fit comfortably around his springy hooves… Sixers mascot Franklin taught Coaty how to dunk when he was just a colt, which gives new meaning to the term, “horse fly.”
 
Coaty’s mission is to use the power of basketball to help Delaware’s youth achieve success in the classroom, on the court, and in their neighborhoods. He hopes you’ll visit him at his stable in the all-new 76ers Fieldhouse in Wilmington very soon!
