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 NOW: Mainer wins Nobel Prize Disappearance baffles family NOW: Trans teen says private school asked him to leave Inside the chaos: Police release Las Vegas body cam footage Jason Aldean on stage when deadly Las Vegas shooting began NEWS CENTER Video Forecast Gun Sales after Las Vegas- NECN NOW: Vegas couple says they recognize gunman from gun show Botanical Garden battle NEWS CENTER Video Forecast More Stories Police ask for help searching for missing man from… Nov 20, 2017, 7:11 a.m. Charles Manson, one of nation's most infamous mass… Nov 20, 2017, 1:04 a.m. Man arrested after reportedly firing off shot gun in… Nov 19, 2017, 9:48 a.m.
