MLB Orbit Engages With Fans

When you're at a ball game, you put the phone down and pay attention to the marvels happening in front of you. It's just common sense.

So with lots of Astros fans fixated on their Pokemon Go screens during the team's home loss to Toronto on Wednesday, Houston's mascot, Orbit, decided to drop some commentary with a comedy bit.

Roaming the foul line in a desperate attempt to gain their attention, Orbit didn't have too much success at first – but then he pulled out the big guns with a special surprise from his hat which he knew the fans couldn't refuse. Check out the whole sequence in this video posted to MLB.com:

Ultimately, whether you're in America or on foreign soil, it seems there's no escaping Pokemon in the sports world in 2016.
