MLB.com posts, rough estimate, 2.67 million videos during the baseball season. Highlights, bloopers, fans holding babies, crying babies, fans dropping babies to catch foul balls, etc. If it happens during a game, chances are MLB will post it online — a radical departure from the days when it would scrub any and all baseball content posted to YouTube.

For some reason these two fans wearing horse masks grilling in San Francisco’s McCovey Cove made it online to MLB.com, where it eventually found its way to Baseball Reddit and now here. Why?

The Internet, it provides us so many answers but often just as many questions.
