Close Slugger's birthday is always a home run Slugger's birthday is always a home run. WCSH 10:18 PM. EDT May 07, 2017 CONNECT TWEET LINKEDIN GOOGLE+ PINTEREST (NEWS CENTER) -- It was a very sunny and special day for Slugger, the mascot for the Portland Sea Dogs. Slugger has said he turned 23-years-old today. Considering that the ball club debuted in 1994 the math makes sense. Slugger spent his afternoon basking in the sun, riding around the entirety of Hadlock Field in a golf cart as well as taking pictures with adoring fans. If his secret wish was for another win, it wasn't granted. Hopefully, he didn't get too upset when his squad got shellacked starting in the 7th inning by the Reading Fightin Phils. © 2017 WCSH-TV CONNECT TWEET LINKEDIN GOOGLE+ PINTEREST JOIN THE CONVERSATION To find out more about Facebook commenting please read the Conversation Guidelines and FAQs Leave a Comment TRENDING VIDEOS State police hold presser regarding discovery of body along Rte. 193 in Washington County Lewiston apartment scam Sen.JohnMcCaindiagnosedwithbraincancer NEWS CENTER Video Forecast Grieving Pets Mickey reveals adoption day Mill Shutdown WCSH Breaking News Woman hospitalized after one drink at Cancun resort Driver speaks about ambulance accident 5 More Stories OJ Simpson granted parole in Nevada robbery Jul 20, 2017, 9:24 a.m. Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington dies in LA at 41 Jul 20, 2017, 2:24 p.m. LePage leaves open the possibility of a U.S. Senate run Jul 20, 2017, 9:50 a.m.
