For the record, the Battle Creek Bombers defeated the Madison Mallards 4-1 in some Northwoods League minor-league baseball action on Wednesday night.

Also for the record, the whole Green Man charging the field — to organ music, no less — and escaping through an outfield wall manned by his pal Yellow Man smells a little bit like attention-needy gimmickry. Regardless, the announcer's commitment to getting through his celebrating-birthdays-today list is to be commended.
