Twins mascot catches baseball in his mouth (GIF)


The Minnesota Twins were in the middle of  beat down from the Tampa Bay Rays last night, trailing 8 to 1 in the top of the seventh inning. Fortunately it was a meaningless spring training game.

There was one highlight for the Twins though, but it didn’t come from one of the players it came from the mascot. The ball boy was lining up to toss a ball into the stands where many eager young fans were waiting. A routine scene at a baseball game, only this time he found the Twins mascot and tossed the ball in his direction.

The Twins mascot then caught the ball in his mouth, and the Twins finally had a highlight play.
