Don’t Run Onto the Field in Portland or a Pickle Mascot Might Wreck You

Baseball Is Fun

Streaking at a baseball game is not advised for any number of reasons, but that seems to be especially the case at the home of the Portland Pickles of the West Coast League.

The Pickle, himself, will take you out:

That was a real hit, even if the rest of it was, perhaps, a touch staged. I’m not saying it was DEFINITELY just a show, but it did work out awfully neat and tidy. I still enjoyed the takedown, though. Guy knows how to absorb a blow.

It must also be noted that the Portland Pickles have been known to have some staged fun with their mascot, Dillon. Like his oopsie photo:

Or the time he went missing:

I got nothing but love for it. In a wood bat collegiate league, there’s no reason not to have some extra fun and get whatever attention you can get. If that includes a pickle mascot’s hijinx, go for it.
