ST. CLOUD - The St. Cloud Rox announced "Chisel" as the winning name for their new team mascot on Thursday night.

Hundreds of submissions were made during the "name your mascot contest" which took place in January where fans could submit names for the new mascot. Tom Stoermann submitted the name Chisel and will receive a pair of Rox season tickets for the 2014 season and a private appearance from the mascot at his son's school in Albany.

Blast, Lou Brox, Pickaxe Pete and Rusty were the other finalist names for the mascot.

Chisel will wear the number 71 as a tribute to the original Rox minor league team that played in St. Cloud until 1971.

The Rox home opener is on Friday, May 30th at 7:05 p.m. at Joe Faber Field.
