DETROIT, MI – Could it be? A squirrel made an on field appearance during the Sunday’s St. Louis Cardinals game versus the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park. There was no score in the game when the animal made its dash in the 7th inning. The team went on to score five runs that inning and hold on to win 5-2.
Welcome back, Rally Squirrel. Can we get you some salsa?
