The best mascot dance in baseball?

Aside from the actual game, my favorite part of attending a baseball game is the food (Primanti Brothers classic steak at PNC Park). However, I’m also a big fan of good mascots. The Pirate Parrot? Well, I’ve seen much better. Actually, I believe the best mascot in all of baseball does his magic in (Little) Washington, Pennsylvania — the mascot does his thing for the Washington Wild Things of the Frontier League.

I’m not going to make this a long post by any means, but I wanted to drop this video of the Wild Thing doing his 7th inning stretch “workout.” Unfortunately, a search of YouTube turned up very little footage of this mascot-mastery but you’ll get the idea. I used to attend Wild Things game on a regular basis (on Thursday mostly, for $1 beer and hot dog night) and used to be drawn to tears watching this mascot do his thing (of course, this could be a direct consequence of $1 beers). Nonetheless, I have placed the video below for your enjoyment. Let me know if you know of any better mascot traditions out there.

Currently a PhD student in Olympic History, Brad is studying and writing his doctoral dissertation on the Ronald Reagan administration's attempts to influence those African countries under the Soviet sphere of influence to defy the Kremlin and attend the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games despite the Soviet Bloc boycott. He is also highly interested in the recreational culture of the Black Hills gold rush (and, thus, the story of the little known Mt. Rushmore baseball team).
