Paula the Penguin Delivers Game Ball

By Precious Sanders @pdsanders99

In addition to the ceremonial first pitch, the Cincinnati Reds’ pre-game routine includes the delivery of the game ball to the pitcher’s mound.  Typically, the person delivering the game ball has been a celebrity or other dignitary.  Yesterday, however, the game ball was delivered by none other than Paula the Penguin of the Newport Aquarium.

Originally from Africa, the warm Cincinnati day (temperatures hit the lower 80s) did not faze the small bird as she embarked on her mission.  It seems that Paula’s cute, waddling steps were a hit with the crowd.  Her appearance was part of a Sunday fun day for the Reds Heads Kids Club, and, as I understand it, marks the first-ever game ball delivery by a non-human.
