Squirrel! Rally Squirrel Stops Indians Game but doesn't help them win


There's a baseball "Thing" of late which implies anytime a game gets interrupted by an animal--said animal becomes a "Good Luck Charm" of sorts because it inevitably leads said team to a win.

Not on Saturday.....

The Minnesota Twins/Cleveland Indians game at Progressive Field was delayed for a couple minutes late Saturday afternoon when a squirrel somehow made its way onto the field.

Yes, a squirrel.....

Squirrel made his way around the infield and eventually up the 3rd baseline before being funneled into the seats (??). Yeah, I'm pretty sure the fans weren't thrilled to see him either.

Anyway, back to my point. "Squirrel" did not help the Indians. Not a bit. They lost to the Twins 4-1, disproving the theory a loose animal will become your "Rally Mascot"...and so ends this somewhat pointless but amusing anecdote....

And it is a chance for us to go "Retro"....
