Bald eagle lands on Mariners P Paxton's shoulder during anthem

Bald eagle lands on Mariners P Paxton's shoulder during anthem

The eagle, representative of the nation and its beloved pastime, likely knew that Paxton is Canadian. Instead, it picked out another target at Target Field. He was surprised to have the eagle land on his shoulder, but he didn't flinch.

This will probably be one of the most entertaining parts of Seattle's season so it's lucky that Paxton is okay because that means we can laugh at this later. Or, maybe, he was mislead by a commercial featuring James Paxton with a nest in his baseball hat. He definitely grades out better than Minnesota starter Kyle Gibson, who went six innings without giving up a hit in his first start this year against Baltimore. But as I stood up, he kind of fell off my back a little bit and was kind of clawing to try to get back up on my shoulder. Knebel threw a 95 miles per hour fastball for ball two, then stumbled to the ground and left with the assistance of trainers.

Both teams had a good time reliving the moment. Minnesota lost 5-4 on Monday and on Wednesday the Twins struck back with a 7-3 victory.

"I don't know if it's a different Brian Dozier", Twins manager Paul Molitor said. Twins catcher Mitch Garver called it "terrifying", but Twins closer Fernando Rodney joked about trying to use one of his celebratory imaginary arrows to bring it down.
