The Minnesota Twins might need to find room on their roster for a bear.

In the seventh inning of Tuesday's game between Minnesota and the Tampa Bay Rays in Fort Myers, Twins mascot T.C. Bear showed off his skills by catching a baseball -- in his mouth. 

After Tampa Bay's Logan Forsythe hit a ground ball foul down the third-base line against pitcher Deolis Guerra, a Twins ball boy picked up the baseball and tossed it into the stands. Standing there waiting for the ball was T.C., Minnesota's mascot since 2000. Since T.C. didn't have a glove, he improvised and used his mouth to snag the souvenir.

During home games at Target Field, T.C. shows off his power at the plate by competing in -- and often winning -- softball home run derby contests. Tuesday's catch proved that Twins fans' favorite bear can also play some defense.
