Well, the big bird didn't want to visit the mound, perhaps wary of Major League Baseball's new rule limiting such trips to keep the pace of play.

As it turned out, yesterday's game time 38 degree temperature was only the second coldest opening day at Target Field.

Paxton did anything but panic, not flinching as the eagle made a first pass at him.

The Twins are off to a 3-2 start.

Marie Claire slammed over Meghan Markle's 'single grey hair'
Ms Mulroney's daughter is expected to be a bridesmaid alongside her mother and Prince William's daughter Princess Charlotte. The funds are is from his annual $28 million (R331,2 million) earnings from his income as the Duchy of Cornwall.

Full credit to Paxton for keeping his composure.

A larger sample size would suggest Paxton is going to be just fine. "So might as well see what happens".

This will probably be one of the most entertaining parts of Seattle's season so it's lucky that Paxton is okay because that means we can laugh at this later.

As its handler rushed towards the pitcher, the bird got off the ground again, flew towards Paxton and landed on his shoulder. Gibson threw six shutout innings in his 2018 debut last week against Baltimore.

Trump takes credit over border crossings, but says tougher action needed
Jose Antonio Meade, from the ruling party, called on all candidates to "join in defense of sovereignty and national dignity". Trump has seized on news reports that the migrant group was traveling toward the U.S.

Somehow Paxton didn't freak out, and he took it like a champ, standing still. But it was just trying to stand on my shoulder. "The talons, they were kind of sharp on my back, but I don't have any scratches I believe".

So he simply resumed warming up. "I don't have any scratches, I don't believe", Paxton said.

Talk about poise under pressure.

Other players on both teams had a good laugh over the incident.
