Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman Randall Simon smacked one of the Milwaukee Brewers' sausage mascots with a bat Wednesday when the mascots were running by the dugout in between innings. The Italian sausage and another character, a hot dog, tumbled to the ground. Simon was arrested, booked, and ordered to appear in the DA's office today. I love sports. Link Discuss
