Coming face to face with the mascot version of yourself has to be a bizarre experience.
That’s what happened Thursday night to NESN broadcaster Dennis Eckersley, who, alongside Don Orsillo, watched from the booth as Eck beat out Rickey Henderson and Rollie Fingers in the Oakland A’s nightly mascot race.
Eckersley seemed more perplexed by the experience than anything, but Orsillo was loving every minute of it.
The A’s went on to run away from the Boston Red Sox in a 4-2 win, with Dustin Pedroia’s sixth-inning home run providing the only offense for the visiting Sox.
