Were any of you at the game tonight? (I guess it was last night now). Anyway, there was this really strange clown in right field in a baby costume. I'm not kidding! It was one of the more bizarre things that I've ever seen at a baseball game. :confused:

They showed some guys in a baby outfit, and one that had a blowup headset on like a coach would wear on FSN...there were some other people around him wearing some strange things also.

There were several costumed fans sitting with the "baby" guy. Maybe it was some kind of club initiation... his costume just stood out from the others.

I don't get the "thumbs down." Why is a banana suit offensive?

just wanted to say i was sitting in right field last night, and right before Tom Gordon came in the game, a person dressed as a giant blue baby was yelling "tooooooom" as he was crying, Gordon didn't go through the normal warm up routine and only threw 2 pitches and then left the bulllpen area. the phillies bullpen were having a hayday with this guy all night long though, they even threw him a baseball.

Thom and Chris discussed the giant baby at length during a lull in the game. There were other costumed characters near the "baby," so I wondered if their collective appearance was some kind of hazing stunt.

I wonder if that would have earned a ball from Todd Jones?

Seems to me you had to be pretty creative to get one.

The idiocy and language coming coming from his mouth were what was offensive!

Ah. That makes sense. I didn't realize you were actually there; thus, the confusion.

First thing that popped into my head was the Lindner regime.

Actually i lied this is the last one, but it doesn't do it justice. this is the only picture i got of the phillies bullpen while they were looking at him, but again it doesn't do it justice.

OK, Mroby85, I'll bite. Why did your group go to the game in costume?

Maybe the reds could use a "Rally Baby!" ala the Angels a few years back.

we dressed up because we're trying to take the "jungle" atmosphere acrossed the street, get it a little bit rowdy in there, and make some noise.
plus, we were trying to get on tv, lol.
i have lots of other pictures, but those were the best ones.

Watch out your costumes might just get you thrown out if you act too stupid in them.

actually, john allen commended us on our efforts after the game, and encouraged us to make a return to GABP in costume, and "rowdy up the crowd"
In general GABP could use a little bit more enthusiasm from their fans!
