The second half of the MLB season is under way with a number of teams making moves to try and stamp their ticket into the playoffs. While you’d think the pressure amongst players would be starting to build up, there have been a number of fun, wacky events that have taken place on the ball field recently.
Here are five classics you may have missed…
5. The Mascot
The Philly Fanatic – one of the best mascots in baseball – had some fun with Hunter Pence. Hunter returned the favor.
4. The Standoff
Hopefully this becomes an ongoing tradition – an epic standoff between Aaron Barrett and Brandon Barnes.
3. The Crackers
Yadier Molina has his third base coach leave a special treat for his brother on home plate. Just classic.
2. The Rain
It’s hard not to feel bad for the grounds crew at Yankee Stadium – but their fail led to a shortened game and Yankees win.
1. The Race
Cheese Chester went down hard yesterday during the Pierogi race – apparently with a broken leg. We are a little skeptical – the hot nurse showed up awfully quickly and fumbled with the stethoscope before carting poor Chester off the field.
