The act billed as “Tim ‘Wild Thang’ Lepard and Team Ghostriders” has become one of minor league baseball’s best-sellers, with fans filling ballparks to watch Lepard’s cowboy-clad capuchin ring-tailed monkeys riding on the backs of border collies, chasing after big-horned sheep.
For a sport that embraces the offbeat like no other, the cowboy monkey rodeo—which now dots three-dozen teams’ promotional schedules—seems like a natural fit.
“What I tell people is that if you can watch the cowboy monkey rodeo and not smile, you have no soul,” said Harrisburg Senators (Eastern) general manager Randy Whitaker, whose team has booked Lepard each of the past four seasons.
