The Cincinnati Reds finished up a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, and before the game started they had a very special visitor on the field.
Paolo the Penguin of the Newport Aquarium helped to deliver the game ball in the contest. Unfortunately, the aquatic bird's presence was not enough for the Reds to overcome the Cardinals, as they fell 7–5 after 11-innings of baseball.
Penguins seem to be big fans of baseball, as a group of them paid a visit to the Chicago White Sox last season as well.
