D-backs mascot goes up and in while pitching in youth game, entire team chases him down

Arizona Diamondbacks mascot D. Baxter the Bobcat participated in a Club Naranjeros youth game on Sunday. Along with posing for some pictures with the kids and, for some reason, standing on top of a car, Baxter took the mound against one of the youngsters. It did not go so well:

 


Definitely a questionable managerial decision to put in a pitcher with paws for hands, but still, Baxter should be able to get it closer to the strike zone. Let's hope he's not too hurt from the entire team piling on top of him. The D-backs need him at 100 percent for next season.
