Today the Seattle Mariners center fielder Leonys Martin turned 29. To celebrate his birthday the Mariners hired a mariachi band to follow him around their spring training facility. No, I'm not kidding.
Martin has also been sporting a large sombrero around during practice today and seems to be playing along with the joke. They Mariners do have a game later today so it is unknown how long the band will end up staying, but hopefully they can stay and provide some entertainment in between innings.

Martin is now making sure the band is hydrated and asking for water to be brought to them while we works on pop ups in the sun— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) March 6, 2017
