Mariners fans recreate Lion King scene with dogs at the ballpark
The Seattle Mariners hosted "Bark in the Park" day when fans brought their dogs to the ballpark. On the "Simba Cam", they recreated the famous scene.
Baseball AND dogs? Come on. Now that is a dream come true! The Seattle Mariners hosted an event called "Bark in the Park", in which dog owners can bring their furry friends with them to the ballpark to watch a baseball game.
A video from the Mariners game quickly went viral on social media of the owners and their poochies in the stands. During the game, there is a dedication to the canines in which the owners hold them up whilst the song "The Circle of Life" from The Lion King plays over the speakers. They call it "Simba Cam" and the camera will randomly pick fans and their pups to display on the jumbo-tron while the music plays. The owners proudly hold up their doggos just like Rafiki holds up Simba to show to all of Pride Rock. Baseball can start to feel long, so these fun little distractions help everyone to stay entertained. Because even if your team is losing, how can you not smile seeing all those cute fluffs in the air?
