Phillie Phanatic creates a scare

A serious incident tuned into a humorous scene, as the Philadelphia bomb squad was called to Citizens Bank Park to investigate a mysterious package outside the ballpark on Thursday.

The police concluded the package contained hot dogs and condiments left by a film crew that shot a commercial with the Phillie Phanatic earlier in the day.

According to the Philadelphia Phillies web site, the bomb squad handled it accordingly:

The Philadelphia Police’s bomb squad detonated the packages and sounded an “all clear” for fans to return to the park, a Phillies spokesperson reported.

“The police reported that this package did not contain an explosive device,” Michael Stiles said.

Shortly after the package was detonated, multiple reports surfaced that the packages contained hot dogs and condiments left by a delivery person.
