Thanks To The “Simba Cam,” Baseball Games At This Stadium Have Gone To The (Adorable) Dogs!

Baseball fans lift up their pets on simba cam

Expect peanuts, crackerjacks, and perhaps a home run when you’re at a baseball game. But what about a pup-lifting spectacle set to “The Lion King” score? Citi Field, home to the New York Mets, presents a yearly “Bark in the Park” night where this canine dream comes true. They call it the “Simba Cam”.


Picture a Jumbotron screen featuring dachshunds, pugs, and even Samoyeds, lifted high by their owners as the unmistakable melody from “The Circle Of Life” fills the air. From toy poodles becoming fluffy Simbas to dachshunds in Mets jerseys, it’s a sight that makes you momentarily forget there’s a baseball game going on. And the video below is it’s unarguably the best curveball of the season.

These furry stars are the uplifting MVPs we didn’t know we needed. Ready to uplift your spirit with this paw-some spectacle? Share this tail-wagging story with others!
