Astros mascot Orbit has been desperate for attention from the Rangers the entire weekend. Before Saturday’s game he begged multiple players to take part in a bit in which he had them trying to knock down cones with a ball. Orbit had it rigged to where the cones wouldn’t fall easily even with a direct hit. Sam Dyson finally played along and pegged Orbit with a ball when he realized the game was rigged.
Rangers infielder Hanser Alberto took the mascot interaction to another level before Sunday’s game. Orbit challenged him to a Nerf dart gun duel but also had that rigged. Upon drawing their guns, Orbit had multiple darts hitting Alberto. Bottom line: Orbit has bits. And he cheats.
