Despite coming into Game 5 of the NLCS facing elimination, the Los Angeles Dodgers have enjoyed their playoff run and it’s been displayed on the field, much to the irritation of their opponents.
Members of the Dodgers have been quite exuberant when things have went their way – or even when they don’t – like Yasiel Puig‘s epic bat flip on a ball that didn’t clear the fences. That lead to some comments from the St. Louis Cardinals, namely pitcher Adam Wainwright to suggest that the Dodgers were ‘doing some Mickey Mouse stuff’.
And that’s exactly what they did, specifically Adrian Gonzalez who took Wainwright deep in the Dodgers’ Game 5 win, the first of two on the day.
As Gonzalez was returning to the dugout after the bomb, he could be seen mimicking the oversized ears of everybody’s favorite Disney character, Mickey Mouse.
The teams will resume their NLCS on Friday night after using Thursday as a travel day. No word on if the Dodgers picked up a case of celebratory Mouse Ears prior to departing from LAX.
