A squirrel's adventure around the field interrupted Jimmy Rollins' visit to the Phillies booth
Longtime Phillies icon Jimmy Rollins was back at Citizens Bank Park for the team's game against the Nats on Saturday night, but his visit to the Phillies' TV booth was interrupted ... by a loose squirrel who showed up on the scene ready for some havok.

As you'll see in the video atop this post, Rollins visited the booth for the top of the third inning, after the squirrel had returned to the field of play and caused a bit of an adorable distraction for everybody.
Remember, animals such as squirrels (or ducks) don't need tickets to check out baseball games, so if they want to show up and run around, they can. That's just how it works.
Adrian Garro joined MLB.com in 2016. Throughout his travels, both Bartolo Colon and Vin Scully have placed their hands on his shoulders. Not at the same time, though. That'd be amazing.
