Houston Astros’ mascot Orbit booed by fans at All-Star Game
All of the Houston Astros’ players backed out of the MLB All-Star Game, which left the team’s mascot to get the boos.
When the MLB mascots were introduced in front of the fans ahead of the Home Run Derby on Monday, “Orbit,” the Astros’ mascot, heard it from the fans.
Orbit, the Astros mascot, just got booed mercilessly by the crowd here. By far the biggest reaction to any of the mascot intros.

Orbit took the booing well according to a fan in attendance.

Orbit even took some more direct heckling.

By now you know what the “bang bang” means. It’s a reference to the Astros cheating by banging a trash can.
If the mascot was hearing it from the fans, imagine how much worse it would have been for the team’s players.
