Ok, ok, ok. so it’s not ‘the’ Michael Jackson, just an impersonator. He performed at the game between innings because it was Michael Jackson Remembrance Night at Blair Field. Not only was there an faux MJ, but when it came time to play the National Anthem it was a recording of the Jackson 5 from 1970. Also, Arby I, the team’s mascot, was wearing one glove.
