Phillie Phanatic's ATV Breaks Down On Field Before Phillies-Nationals Game (VIDEO)

The Phillie Phanatic ran into a bit of mechanical trouble at Citizens Bank Park on Monday night.

Before the beginning of the Phillies-Nationals game, the Phanatic indulged in his usual pre-game schtick to warm up the crowd. But as the mascot attempted to drive his ATV across left field, the four-wheeler refused to start. That's when Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth walked over.

Werth and the Phanatic have a bit of history between them, leading some to speculate whether Werth was somehow in on the mechanical failure.

A few grounds crew workers had to lift up the ATV and take it off the field.
