  • Baseball Team Oakland Athletics Pays a Sluggin' Sonic Tribute

    Elephant on the (Green) Hill (Zone).

    Californian baseball fans were given a super Sonic treat over the weekend, as the regional team Oakand Athletics paid a tribute to SEGA's mascot while celebrating their players on the Jumbotron during a recent game.

    The video above, shared on social media by 'Dizzydennis', features a number of present and past A's players as they raced around a Green Hill Zone style level collecting baseballs and knocking out evil robot villains. At the very end, former player Eric Chavez appears to 'win' the game, while the team's elephant mascot dances in victory.

    It's a really cool thing for sports fans to see, and just goes to show how mainstream Sonic the Hedgehog still is across all forms of media. Let us know what you think of this tribute in the comments below.

    Fuck the A's.



    But I guess Sonic is really back if he is being used to try to wallpaper over a successful real life attempt to recreate the events of the film Major League and bilk hundreds of millions of dollars out of a state government.

    Nice work by the AV department over there. too bad there would have only been 25 people in the crowd to see it.
