They’re running now

Much to C. Trent’s delight, the Reds mascots are now running… in their own race on Sundays. It may only be three of them (Mr. Redlegs, Mr. Red and Rosie Red) racing, and always a bit of funny business involved (think scoreboard version), but they’re running! Live!

If I’ve been reading C. Trent correctly on Twitter (search #LetThemRun) he would like to see the mascots run free – doing away with any obstacles to over come (Gapper) in the event and let them race flat-out. While I do see his point, I don’t mind the hijinx and likely choreographed result of the race. That said, I didn’t witness this one…

Thanks to our friend Aaron Doster for the great shot of the live Mr. Reds race on Sunday.
