The Saline High School baseball team have been marching through the postseason thanks to their timely hitting, shutdown pitching, and a goat they purchased off Craigslist.
“I woke up one morning thinking we needed a team goat,” said Saline pitcher Josh Smith. “I can’t really explain it.”
Given front row seats for all of the Hornets playoff games -- this after attending every home game during the regular season (and even some on the road) -- the goat has become a beloved mascot to both fans and players.
“You see him and it cheers you up,” Smith added. “It keeps everything loose in the dugout.”
