Sausage Attack Overshadows Brewers' Win

By BEN WALKER

The Italian sausage was a hit with Randall Simon.

In a bizarre scene during the popular sausage race at Miller Park, the Pittsburgh first baseman took his bat and delivered a two-handed chop that knocked over a woman dressed in costume Wednesday night.

Simon was booked for misdemeanor battery and released after the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Pirates 2-1 in 12 innings. He will meet with the district attorney's office Thursday, and it will be up to prosecutors to determine whether formal charges are filed.

``It was very strange,'' Pirates outfielder Reggie Sanders said.

The race is a fan favorite at Miller Park. Held between the sixth and seventh innings, people dress up as a bratwurst, hot dog, Polish sausage and Italian sausage and run around the field.

As the group went past Pirates' third-base dugout, Simon reached over a railing and hit the Italian sausage character from behind, causing the 20-year-old woman wearing the outfit to tumble. When she fell, the woman portraying the hot dog also went down.

``They both were treated at the scene for scraped knees, but at this point I don't think they have any other complaints,'' said Deputy Inspector Sherry Warichak of the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department.

Pirates outfielder Reggie Sanders said he thought the weight of the head on the sausage costume contributed to the fall.

``It maybe made it look worse than it was,'' Sanders said. ``It was an unfortunate situation and, hopefully, it gets resolved.''


**That is such a stupid act by a player!**

What was that guy thinking? Stupid.

On a lighter note~
Somedays it just doesn't pay to dress as a meat by- product.
