The Elephant Arrives 

The Barones de Barceloneta arrived in Caguas with a marching band, ten cheerleaders, and a 12-foot African bush elephant.

The elephant marched down PR-95, where he backed up traffic for three miles. Even though he was the mascot for the opposing team, everyone wanted to touch the elephant.

When they arrived at the Caguas stadium the elephant reared up on its hind legs, then took the first ceremonial swing.

Juan Bobo didn’t appreciate this grandstanding by the visiting team, but he was ordered to keep his mouth shut. The elephant was bringing fans to the game.

However, when a stink rose from behind the Criollos dugout, Juan had had enough. He phoned the team owner to say “either the elephant goes, or I go.”  This was not a smart move on Juan’s part.

The elephant had doubled the stadium receipts – and so the team owner and the baseball commissioner quickly informed Juan that he could start packing, because the elephant was doing more for the team than Juan was.

The elephant was so popular, that next year the Criollos de Caguas were getting their very own elephant.
