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 Cherryfield homicide victim died of gunshot wounds to head Make your own Shoebox eclipse viewer KKK flyers left around Boothbay Harbor.
