The new mascot was created as a response to survey feedback and fan interviews, the team said in a statement. People wanted more Cubs-related family-friendly entertainment at Wrigley Field, and Clark will interact in the community, engage with young fans, and be respectful of the game.

The new mascot was created as a response to survey feedback and fan interviews, the team said in a statement.
According to the Cubs, Clark's great-grandbear, Joa, was the team's original live bear mascot back in 1916. When Joa retired to the Lincoln Park Zoo, he delighted the young bears with amazing stories.

Look what we found
in the park
in the dark.
We will take him home,
we will call him Clark.
He will live at our house,

So, Joa was one of Clark's forebears?
