As we got closer to the 2024 season, we heard that the Rivets were planning on bringing us a new mascot and asking fans to vote on his name!

Well, as of 5:30pm tonight (May 10) on Good Day Stateline, we all know that our new Rivets mascot is Rally the Rivetsaurus.

Rally isn't just a friendly new face in Rockford... according to the Rivets, he's been here for a while!

One fateful day, excavating the dugouts, a construction crew discovered strange fossils! They called the local Burpee Museum of Natural History paleontologists to investigate!

After they investigated, the Rivets discovered Rally's fossils are relatives of Ceratopsians like the Psittacosaurus.
