A Raccoon Invades the Cheap Seats
In case you missed the weekend’s big spring-training news:
Raccoons are a common sight throughout Tampa and St. Petersburg, but few are known baseball fans.
Eagle-eyed Post photographer Charles Wenzelberg spotted the raccoon and acted fast to snap this incredibly cute image.
“If was a freaky moment and I happened to get it,” Wenzelberg said.
The Post lensman had been in the outfield photographing a rainbow that had appeared over Steinbrenner Field. Then a loud noise startled Wenzelberg — and the raccoon.
