According to Vin Scully on the video of it, the Dodgers have been dancing and have turned on a bubble machine every time someone hits a home run of late. Last night was the first instance I saw of it, following Hanley Ramirez’s home run. Watch it all here.
The dancing is kind of cute, actually. The bubbles are fun. Which I’m sure means that if they do it against the Diamondbacks 14 Dodgers players will be murdered in service to the unwritten rules and playing the game the right way and all of that.
But in the meantime:
The Mariners unveiled a statue of Hall of Fame outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr. earlier this year at Safeco Field, featuring the slugger in his famous follow-through seen after each of his 630 career home runs. Chris Daniels of KING 5 News in Seattle reported on Tuesday evening that someone had stolen the bat from the statue.
Thankfully, the Seattle Police Department announced that the bat has been recovered and a suspect has been arrested. They expect to provide more details later. Daniels reports the Mariners have confirmed the news.
My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.
