We had a zebra rug on our wall when I was growing up. My grandfather hunted Africa many times, and had quite a collection of trophies. The zebra definitely triggers fond memories. Congrats buddy!

I know the pitching coach got tossed, which will result in an additional 3 game suspension due also getting ejected in the Vitalo “bump” game earlier in the season.
