The Houston Astros decided to have a little fun ahead of their game with the Texas Rangers on Saturday. Rightfielder George Springer wanted to play a game of catch with a football, but he added an extra twist by dressing up in a giant dinosaur costume.
The video was certainly a sight to behold as Springer squeezed his arms into the tiny arms of the Tyrannosaurus Rex. He was barely able to lift his arms up, which made it pretty hard for him to catch a football.

The only thing that would have made this better is if the Astros were actually doing pretty decent right now. They ended up losing 2-1, dropping their overall record to 17-27.
At least George Springer is trying to keep the mood in the locker room pretty lighthearted.
