The Lake Elsinore Gorilla prepares to jump into the Bakersfield Blaze dugout

You gotta love minor league baseball but this is one of the funniest things we've ever seen on Bakosphere.

The Lake Elsinore Storm has a guy dressed up in a gorilla costume and his sole purpose, at least in this video, is to get the snot beaten out of him by the opposing team. In this case, the lucky team is the Bakersfield Blaze, and they do a number on this big chimp.

After all, the Blaze may have been defending the honor of their manager, Ken Griffey, who gets smacked on the behind by the simian pretender.

Take a look, you'll laugh.
