Usually in nature the squirrel and the Sea Dog are natural enemies, but not in Portland, Maine. This squirrel has been a regular visitor to the Hadlock Field bullpen for three seasons now, where he regularly feasts on sunflower seeds. In return, the rodent freeloader dispenses occasional pitching tips and promises not to give anyone rabies.

The Sea Dogs, a Double-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, may be gaining points with PETA for this right now, but just wait until May 24th, when that is sure to change. That’s when the team will hold its Bark in the Park night, in which as many as 300 dogs are expected to be in the stadium. And you know how dogs are noted for their ability to totally ignore squirrels.

Bullpen Squirrel, your days are numbered I’m afraid. So eat up.
