Happy 5th Birthday, Screech!


As some of your may or may not know, today was Screech the Eagle’s 5th Birthday. He celebrated all over every nook and cranny of Nationals Park with the help of some of his closest mascot friends from the greater DC, Maryland, and Virginia region.

Check back in tomorrow for an inside look at how Screech and the rest of NatsTown celebrated their dear feathered friend’s birthday!

For now, here are a couple photos to tide you over after the page break.

  1. Was at that game yesterday and the mascot turnout for Screeches birthday was SO much fun.

    Highlights included:

    Screech throwing his cake in the face of a Dodgers fan. Wonder if that was a plant.

    U MD’s Testudo getting run over by the Presidents during their race, being shell shocked for a while and having trouble rolling over

    Screech hitting Poe (from the Ravens) with his pinata bat while blind folded. Mascots then pounced on the pinata candy.
