Vegas Play of the Day: Seattle Mariners at Minnesota Twins

As it turned out, yesterday's game time 38 degree temperature was only the second coldest opening day at Target Field. But it was just trying to stand on my shoulder.

And Paxton wound up as the landing spot, sticking its talons into his back. Knebel threw a 95 miles per hour fastball for ball two, then stumbled to the ground and left with the assistance of trainers.

Oddly enough, Paxton has a commercial and accompanying gif where he has a nest of eggs in his hat. Then the eagle, named Challenger, landed in the grass before circling back to find a perch on Paxton's right shoulder.

During the National Anthem, Paxton was standing alone in left field at Target Field between warm-up throws.

The other possibility is that the eagle could tell that Paxton is Canadian and wanted to put a little fear in him.

"I don't know if it's a different Brian Dozier", Twins manager Paul Molitor said.

There was some good-natured joking after the game and Paxton had a phone full of messages to take care of as video of the event has gone viral.

With the eagle taking up residence on his shoulder, Paxton remained as calm as can possibly be expected from someone who is being accosted by a random eagle. "It came for me".
