We feel your pain. Baseball is in the middle of its annual All-Star break.

The Futures Game was fun, the Home Run Derby was exciting, and the Celebrity Softball Game, well, we don't talk about that.

But the hard reality is, we've gone two days without an actual game.

Or, more importantly, a mascot/bottle/sausage/Presidents race.

Don't worry. We've got you covered.

In place of its normal thoroughbreds, Emerald Downs race track in Auburn, Washington, on Saturday raced Tyrannosaurus Rexes.

Yes, you read that right.

More than two-dozen people in inflatable T-Rex costumes filed into the starting chute and raced (stumbled?) their way toward the finish line.

Did they finish? Did they fall? Did they stop mid-race to devour the spectators?

Could we have a new Midsummer Classic?

You'll have to watch the video to find out.
