Whoa! Watch Baseball Mascot Get Crushed By Green Bay Packers Player
The Kenosha Kingfish, just like our Duluth Huskies, are part of the Northwoods Baseball League. It is comprised of talented college players looking to get some experience and exposure outside of their regular season. At many of these events, the mascots are usually the ones responsible for keeping the crowds engaged, and hopefully, it does not involve anything too dangerous.
The Kenosha Kingfish Mascot named "Elvis" is an intern named Trey Myer who also helps out with marketing for the team in Kenosha Wisconsin. He somehow got roped into being tackled by none other than Green Bay Packer Running Back A.J. Dillon. In the interview below you can hear him say how he thought Dillon was going to take it easy on him, but no he went full speed ahead even knocking the mascot's head off.
No wonder this video has gone viral on Twitter with more than 6 million views. Dillon was at the ballpark for a celebrity softball game this past Saturday. According to 24/7Sports.com: "Dillon was a four-star recruit in the 2017 class, according to 247Sports' evaluators, and earned First Team All-ACC honors at Boston College three times before becoming a second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Listed at 6-foot, 247 pounds, Dillon is one of the NFL's thickest and strongest starting-caliber running backs."
Yeah, I don't think Dillon is capable of not going full speed at all times. That poor guy, who happens to be an athlete himself, as a cross country runner at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee did not have a chance to stay on his feet. But really who would? At least he is a good sport about it and got some pictures and autographs out of the deal.
