This snake was a very good snake. It just liked baseball. As many of us like baseball. And unlike most of the idiots who invade the field at a baseball game, this snake was not doing it for personal glory or because he had consumed too much beer. Instead, he just wanted a closer look, maybe from just behind the second base bag where that umpire seemed to have the best view.

Unfortunately, we are told that this snake did not survive the encounter, and has gone on to a better place. Let us hope that he will be behind that second base bag in perpetuity, observing baseball from the vantage point he so clearly desired. Rest in peace, baseball snake. You were as good as it gets.
