Vegas Play of the Day: Seattle Mariners at Minnesota Twins

Just before the anthem began, the eagle made a decision to use the left-hander's shoulder as a perch.

Ironically, the team introduced a new commercial this season centered on Paxton and his nickname, with Paxton harboring bird eggs in a nest inside his hat. The eagle flew in, but chose a different landing spot - near, and eventually, on Paxton.

Paxton called the experience interesting and said tongue-in-cheek that he wasn't too surprised that the errant eagle sought out the Canadian on the the field. One is that Paxton was standing alone in an open space which might have mimicked the environment of a handler's training and usually strategy to the eagle. "It was coming right for me and I was like, 'All right, the guy is over there".

According to the Seattle Times, the bald eagle was meant to fly across the stadium as part of the opening ceremony, where his handler was presumably waiting. Gibson earned a win in his first start as he pitched six scoreless innings against the Orioles in Baltimore.

Somehow Paxton didn't freak out, and he took it like a champ, standing still.

"I think it's a sign of how strong the wind was tonight, or that maybe I need to get in the weight room more", Dozier joked. But as I stood up, he kind of fell off my back a little bit and was kind of clawing to try to get back up on my shoulder. "The talons, they were kind of sharp on my back, but I don't have any scratches I believe".
