On the 7th (Korean time), a ‘surprise guest’ visited Busch Stadium.
The day the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers played at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. The appearance of a ‘special guest’ drew attention.
In the bottom of the 7th inning, St. Louis and Detroit were tied 5-5. The game was stopped for a while when Las Nutba, who started as the lead hitter in the St. Louis offense, was at bat. It was because a dark gray squirrel intruded (?) on the infield ground.
The squirrel ran past first base in the infield and into the outfield. About halfway between first base and right field, he moved off the foul line and toward the stands. When the squirrel was nowhere to be seen, the game resumed.
Detroit’s third pitcher, Will Best, and Nutba’s match continued. As a result of the match between the two players, Nutba chose a walk.
Five years ago, a squirrel showed up at a game between St. Louis and Detroit. At the time, it was Comerica Park, Detroit’s home stadium. On September 10, 2018, in the top of the 6th inning, when both teams were tied 0-0, a dark gray mouse ran around the league ground, drawing attention.
At the time, the St. Louis club posted a welcome message on its official SNS, saying, “The Rally Squirrel is back!” This means that it is not the first time that squirrels have appeared at Busch Stadium.
MLB.com said, “The Rally Squirrel appeared in a Cardinals game again after 5 years.” “Ironically, the Rally Squirrel appeared at Comerica Park in 2018. In 2011, squirrels also appeared in Game 4 of the National League Division Series, a game between St. Louis and the Philadelphia Phillies. It was the first squirrel to appear for St. Louis.” 스포츠토토
At that time, St. Louis defeated Philadelphia 5-3 in Game 4. Later, in the regular season game against Detroit in 2018, St. Louis won 5-2. And in the game five years later, St. Louis lost 5-6 to Detroit.
MLB.com said, “St. Louis’ unofficial mascot squirrel.” “I failed to help St. Louis win that day, but I can’t blame this little animal.”
