Diamondbacks’ Willie Bloomquist loses bet, dresses like ND mascot

Arizona State Sun Devils alum and current Arizona Diamondbacks player Willie Bloomquist took a bet with AJ Pollock, his teammate and Notre Dame fan, and evidently lost.  At least Bloomquist was a man about it and honored the bet.  Would have been funny to see Pollock dress up like Sparky. A bet is a bet! I am immediately going to the rifle range decked out in camo and face paint...

Bloomquist not ready to give up starting job
