Phillies expected to unveil new-look Phillie Phanatic mascot this weekend

Over the last 18 months or so, Philadelphia Flyers mascot "Gritty" has dethroned the Phillie Phanatic as the most beloved mascot to hail from the city of brotherly love.

NBC Sports Philadelphia reported Friday that the Phanatic is expected to undergo a few "alterations" that will be unveiled Sunday during the Phillies' spring training game.
