A Surprising Performance By A Cat Had Fans Cheering MVP Last Night
As their mediocre teams lost in New York and Washington Monday night, beleaguered Yankees and Nationals fans were honored with two new heroes in their respective stadiums: a frightened cat and a peaceful, stoic praying mantis.
The Tigers beat the Red Sox 4-2 in the opener of a three-game series. So fans were not real happy.
That is until they got a little animal entertainment from a cat running onto the field. The cat was previously seen in the Orioles’ dugout before running off onto the Yankee Stadium field.
Orioles manager Brandon Hydekept it light and joked that the cat had the characteristics of a well-rounded player: “The cat showed good speed, agility and verticality a few times.”
This isn't the first time a cat has gone onto a playing field from who knows where.
This time, it took a little while to clear the field. It was like a full-on halftime show.
The new kitty on the scene came loose in the outfield of Yankee Stadium in the bottom of the eighth, causing a seven-minute delay, It took so long that the bored Yankees fans exploded with life, chanting "MVP! MVP!" and "Let's go cat!"
The Sox and Tigers play again tonight, 7:10 pm. (Pregame 6:10 pm), I wonder if they will have another surprise animal entertainer tonight.
