Simon Swats Italian Sausage Mascot
Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman Randall Simon has been charged with misdemeanor battery for striking a woman dressed in an Italian sausage costume.
The incident took place during a mascot race of human sausages at a Milwaukee Brewers game. Simon struck the woman a two-handed blow from behind, causing her to fall forward and creating a sausage pile-up.
“It was very strange,” Pirates outfielder Reggie Sanders said.
