BALTIMORE (AP) -The Mariner Moose will ride again.
The Seattle Mariners' mascot won't be disciplined for running into Boston Red Sox outfielder Coco Crisp while riding an all-terrain vehicle during Sunday's game.
``The Mariners are very sorry about this unfortunate incident. We apologized Sunday to both Coco Crisp and the Red Sox, and they were very gracious about accepting our apology,'' Tim Hevly, the team's director of baseball information, said Tuesday night.
``There will be no punishment for the Moose,'' Hevly said.
In the middle of the fifth inning, the mascot's ATV hit Crisp in the back of his legs and knocked him to his knees on the infield warning track at the beginning of a stunt in front of Boston's dugout.
``Never really gotten hit by a moving vehicle before. That was the most athletic thing I did all day,'' Crisp said after the game. ``It was an accident. I mean, I'm not going to run over and clothesline the guy.''
