    what a wienie!!!!!!

    All 'Italian sausage' really wants is infamous bat

    Associated Press


    MILWAUKEE -- The young woman inside the Italian sausage costume says she'll accept an apology from Pittsburgh first baseman Randall Simon, but all she really wants is the bat he swatted her with as she ran past the Pirates' dugout.


    With one swing Wednesday night, Simon sent 19-year-old Mandy Block tumbling to the ground in the heavy costume. A fellow racer dressed as a hot dog also fell.


    Simon, cited for disorderly conduct and fined $432, issued a public apology before leaving town after the Pirates' 5-4 victory over the Brewers on Thursday. Block said a team representative told her Simon would call her Friday to apologize.


    "One of the public relations ladies called me and she talked to me and she was really nice and offered a lot and said, 'Anytime you're in Pittsburgh ... the best seat in the house is yours,''' Block said at her South Milwaukee home Thursday night.


    "But all I wanted was the bat.''


    She and the other racer, Veronica Piech, had the day off Thursday from their jobs with the Brewers, but they planned to return Friday. Block said she was told that bats autographed by Simon would be waiting at Miller Park, and hers would be the same bat Simon swung at her Wednesday night.


    The sausage race, a fan favorite since 1995, features team employees dressed as an oversized bratwurst, hot dog, Italian sausage and Polish sausage.


    Simon said he was just playing around.


    "I thought at the moment they were trying to play with us. They were running right next to the players,'' he said. "I'm a fun player, and I've never hurt anyone in my life.''


    Simon appeared in the district attorney's office Thursday. Deputy District Attorney Jon Reddin said after reviewing the tape and interviewing the women he would not file criminal charges.


    "It's such a silly little thing, you know,'' Block said. "I can see both point of views. ... From my point of view, it's crazy because I am not used to like being interviewed or anything. I'm like, 'I'm just a sausage, guys. It's not a big deal. I'm fine.'''


    Block, who has worked for two summers as a member of the Brewers' on-field promotional team, said it's normal for opposing teams to throw peanuts or squeeze water bottles at them.


    "I saw the bat before I got to him. I thought he was just going to fake me out,'' said Block, who stands 5-foot-3. "I am real little and I didn't take the blow very well.''


    Block said the blow didn't hurt because it hit the head section of the costume, which is above her head.


    The Pirates apologized and said the team does not condone Simon's behavior and will address the issue internally.

    As much as I think the dope that hit this gal should be suspended and fined.........

    I love the thought that this gal just wanted a signed bat.....not a lawsuit, huge amounts of money, or this guy's head on a platter.....
    Nice to know that there are some people that
    don't have to sue to put an end to an unfortunate incident.

    I heard this on the news

    I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running
    from one falling star to another till i drop. This is the night, what it does to you.
    I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Whatever would compel an adult to hit another person with a BAT? About the HEAD?

    As to suing someone over it...I would, IF I was injured...why should his right to be an idiot trump my right to remain injury free?

    I watched the news reports, over and over, on CNN last night, while I was sitting in the airport. I thought it was hilarious! How sick am I?? Of course, I had called one of my Pet Talk buddies, who told me about it..........I love the fact that the girl has taken it all in fun, and she will get her bat!!

    Logan, who is still laughing at those sausages running around!!!
