Mascot baseball: The game you never knew you needed

When East Tennessee mascots face off on the baseball diamond, you never quite know what'll happen. (5/17/17)

Mascots from all around East Tennessee gathered at Smokies Stadium once again for the annual 'WBIR Live at 5 at 4 Mascot Baseball Challenge.'

This year brought new teams and some new faces, as well as returning players.

Inspired by Live at Five at 4 regulars, Dr. Bob Overholt and Neal Denton, teams divided to play as Bob’s Batters and Neal’s Diamonds with members of the Tennessee Smokies heading each team.
