OK, I'm just having trouble fathoming this one. Apparently the Milwaukee Brewers have, as between-inning entertainment, a race between people dressed like sausages. (This seems to be a common thing to do in small-market cities; the Pirates race has people dressed as pierogies.)
So the Pirates, who have their own foodstuff race, were visiting the Brewers not too long ago. And one of their players decked a sausage.
Now, this isn't the case of a mascot pissing off the opposing team and getting what he deserves (like the Calgary Flames mascot did last winter) -- these guys were just running a silly little race during the commercial break.
Now, what would've really made this one interesting would have been if a drunk fan and his son attacked a sausage.
