The Los Angeles Dodgers were relieved to see the bats finally came alive during their 3-0 Game 3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. But the real story in La La Land wasn’t Yasiel Puig’s thrilling triple or Hyun-Jin Ryu’s great outing on the hill — it was a man dressed as a bear dancing on the Cardinals dugout.

This would be perfectly normal behavior for a team’s mascot — but the Dodgers don’t have a mascot. Luckily, the TBS cameras caught a glimpse of this renegade, unauthorized Dodgers cheerleader while they panned in on the Cardinals dugout.
Judging by this tweet from earlier in the evening, the unidentified fan was apparently wearing the costume throughout much of the game — which I guess is pretty standard in Los Angeles.
