Not since Rich Gossage has a goose made such a spectacle of itself on a baseball field.
During Wednesday's game between the Angels of Los Angeles and the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park, a real Canada goose was loose on the field and disrupted the operations. It happened in the sixth inning just after the teams had come back from a short rain break.

The goose had no obvious plans to abandon it, causing a literal wild-hunting in the field. The goose mocked the security forces of Comerica Park and led them through the field for over 30 seconds.
Until then it was an extremely funny event. Then it took a more serious turn as the goose blew up and crashed into one of the digital scoreboards that lined the inside of the ballpark.
The stunned goose fell on the seats below, but we are happy that the goose is healthy and ready to wreak havoc again.
We were informed The goose is healthy and was released outside the ballpark. #RallyGoose

You will notice that the Tigers added the hashtag #RallyGoose. That was because the game was tied when the goose arrived, and from there Detroit went on to score five unanswered runs to win the game 6-1.
What works, right?
The angels have the "rally monkey". The St. Louis Cardinals had the "Rally Squirrel". If the now 25-30 Tigers make a surprising run this summer, the "Rally Goose" in Detroit will certainly be one thing.
