We all know the slide at American Family Field. Bernie’s Slide. The one the mascot slides down after the home team hits a home run. It actually looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Did you know – anyone can go down the slide. You just have to book it in advance and it’s $150 for 5 rides down the slide plus a photo op. As far as baseball experiences go, not a terrible deal. Just a casual lookup on insta and it looks like people do this all the time. Men, women, children, no problem.  Dodgers Reporter David Vassegh had been talking about how excited he was to get a chance to do Bernie’s Slide. Now to his defense, maybe the wall at the end of the slide is a little closer than it should be, but how did you break your hand, wrist, and 6 ribs going down the slide. I expected much a worse video for the injuries listed. He might wanna get checked out for some sort of bone disease. maybe get you a glass of whole milk.

I kid. I kid. It looks like he’s in good spirits and is going to be ok.
