Bald Eagle Lands on James Paxton Before Mariners-Twins Game

Bald Eagles Attempts To Abduct Mariners P James Paxton; His Reaction Was Priceless (VIDEO) Eagle lands on Mariners pitcher before game
| 07 April, 2018, 00:56

In the end, the eagle landing did not give Paxton any luck.

Both Dozier and Buxton reviewed playing Wednesday's game in Pittsburgh in snow flurries, and Dozier touched on a game vs. Tampa a few years back in April where it snowed at Target Field. It started well enough; the eagle took off majestically from its handler's arm and then sort of circled Paxton in the outfield.

Rather than soaring to the mound to reach his summoning handlers, the bird took a path straight toward Paxton, causing him to jerk his upper body backward to avoid being grazed.


Ironically, the team introduced a new commercial this season centered on Paxton and his nickname, with Paxton harboring bird eggs in a nest inside his hat. "That's not the first time I've seen a bald eagle, but it was the first time I've had one try to land on me". "The talons, they were kind of sharp on my back, but I don't have any scratches I believe". With that in mind, I think I have to lean toward the Twins for the win but otherwise I'm just going to stay away and enjoy the game. He said he did feel a "sharp pain", but there were no scratches. 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.

Thursday afternoon, the Twins and Mariners will meet on the diamond before a sold-out crowd which should have plenty to do despite the chill.
