College baseball: An opossum causes delay during LSU-Arkansas game
Just when you thought the LSU-Arkansas baseball series had seen it all this weekend, think again.
A day after LSU held off Arkansas in a crazy game that featured an unoffical triple play, an opossum scurried its way into the outfield at Alex Box Stadium and caused a delay during the seventh inning.
Check out the LSU ground crew wrangle the baby opossum with the assist from Arkansas outfielder Carson Shaddy:
The opossum must have been a good omen for the Tigers though, who rallied to force extra innings and completed the comeback with a walk-off in the 10th.
LSU has seemed to fully embrace the #RallyPossum, which trended on social media quickly Saturday night.
Rally Possum?!?! I love it— Kramer Robertson (@KramerR3) May 8, 2016
Looks like LSU baseball may have to adopt the Rally Possum as a new mascot.
