Meet Derrick and Boomer


Boomer-Action.jpgBoomer-Profile.jpgBoomer
Team: East Texas Pump Jacks
Years: 7

Boomer is half of the Pump Jacks mascot tandem, joining longtime friend Derrick at Irwin UT Tyler Ballpark. The story is that Boomer’s nickname comes from the fact that Kilgore was a “boom town” when oil was discovered in the 1930’s. But if you ask Boomer himself, he’ll proudly say that it comes from the booming home runs he has hit. The Pump Jacks’ “fighting donk”, Boomer is known for his competitiveness, although he failed to win a “race the mascot” race throughout each of the first two seasons. Boomer has also been known for his dancing ability, but you’ll have to visit Irwin Field to experience it for yourself!

Team: East Texas Pump Jacks
Years: 7

The second member of the Pump Jacks mascot family, Derrick, joined the team with Boomer the first day it was announced. Derrick likes to say that he chose the jersey number 3, because he’s a fan of Hall of Famers Babe Ruth and Jimmie Foxx, but the untold story is that he picked it because the very first well to strike oil in East Texas was the Daisy Bradford No. 3. Derrick spends most of his time at Irwin Field playing with children, who flock to the friendly dinosaur. But after hearing from everyone how good of a dancer Boomer was during the first two seasons, Derrick has been improving his moves every season.
