My main concern is why I wasn’t aware of the penguin invasion taking place at US Cellular this afternoon. I would have loved to meet Stanley, the Magellanic Penguin.

Alexei Ramirez, John Danks, Adam Eaton and Jacob Petricka all had some meet and greet moments with Stanley. The cuteness is too much to handle.
