It seems like these days many baseball teams have some type of mascot race between innings. I think it started with the Milwaukee Brewers and their Bratwurst races.

Ever since the Nashville Sounds have played at First Tennessee park, they have the Legends of Country Music Race. Johnny Cash is out to an early lead, followed by George Jones, and finally Reba McEntire - who eventually wins the race on this day

From Wikipedia:
The Federal Aviation Administration Records Center in Martinsburg, West Virginia is the former United States Courthouse and Post Office for the city. It is a Richardson Romanesque style building, principally designed by Willoughby J. Edbrooke, of the Office of the Supervising Architect. It was used as a federal courthouse and post office from 1895 to 1961, when both functions moved across the street to a new facility.

The Federal Aviation Administration occupied the building in 1970, primarily as an emergency relocation center for Washington-based operations, then vacated the building in the 1990s. The blast-resistant construction and communications facilities are still visible in the basement.

The building is now used as a community arts center, and is part of the Downtown Martinsburg Historic District. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
