A minor league baseball mascot has become an internet hit
after 'eating' the pitcher during a game.

'Clammy Sosa', a giant clam mascot, was  entertaining fans at a Myrtle Beach Pelicans
game by playing fetch with the pitcher, who was throwing the ball for the
mascot to chase during the seventh-inning stretch.

The pitcher decided to play a prank on the mascot by sending
him running without having thrown the ball - then added injury to insult by
throwing the ball at the back of his head.

That was it: the mascot snapped, and gobbled up the player
to the delight of the fans.

Watch the video:


But it's not the first time that such a trauma has taken
place in American sport: who can forget the stunning blonde cheerleader eaten
by the Tennesse Titans mascot last year?
