Houston Astros mascot Orbit is always looking to have fun, especially with opposing players. The mascot took things to another level while celebrating its birthday this weekend.

The team showed its mascot some love by giving it a grand introduction:


We're going streaking! Through the quad and into the gymnasium. http://t.co/IRBJzXDrsq

In order to properly celebrate Orbit's birthday, the Astros invited plenty of the mascot's friends to Sunday's game against the Chicago White Sox:

My big birthday introduction! #Astros http://t.co/Gs5AI0ztsT

At some point, Orbit decided that it would be fun to go streaking:

Look out! It's streaking @OrbitAstros! And he's being chased by mascots! #Whiff http://t.co/qfNyfj9RRg

Orbit ran around the field for a bit before the Houston Texans mascot eventually laid him out:

Orbit at least had a good reason for streaking:

And then @OrbitAstros' birthday fun in his birthday suit came to crashing halt. http://t.co/pYt5MU3FwM

That'll teach Gordon Beckham not to steal the mascot's laundry.
