Mascots are a truly fun part of baseball. The tradition began with the purest iteration, Mr. Met: a baseball player whose head is also a baseball. The beauty in the idea is it’s not trying to do too much. Knock it all you want, but the concept works; why else would the Atlanta Braves and Cincinnati Reds (twice) create cheap imitations of their own? Other mascots range from the popular— the Orioles Bird, Wally the Green Monster, and the bald eagle Screech (the non-Dustin Diamond version)— to the confusing (the Phillie Phanatic: what is he?!) Amateur mascots can be fun as well, especially when they take a tumble.

This clip dives right into the action. Right from the start, this girls’ softball mascot, a bulldog, is straddling the top of the cage, and he’s not sure how he’s supposed to get down. One thing’s for sure, it’s not easy maneuvering around in that suit. It’s hot, bulky, and that mascot-head really messes with your peripheral vision. All in all, this is one tall order!
