Tigers embracing ‘Rally Goose’ after scoreboard mishap

The Detroit Tigers’ surprise visitor to Wednesday’s game has already ascended into Hall of Fame meme territory.

During Detroit’s 6-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels, a rogue goose flew onto the field in the top of the sixth inning, prompting stadium personnel to try and chase it away. As the feathery fellow attempted to make his escape, he slammed right into a scoreboard and plummeted to the seats below.

The goose was ultimately announced to be OK however and was soon released outside of Comerica Park.

On Thursday, the Tigers and Angels played again, and the former paid tribute to the “Rally Goose” by bringing a fake goose into the dugout with them.

The Tigers would jump out to a 6-1 lead over the Angels on the heels of a five-run first inning, elevating the legend of Rally Goose to unprecedented heights.

Birds have certainly had a knack for making headlines in baseball this season, and give credit to the Tigers for embracing it instead of crying fowl.
