Norfolk, Va. - More than 3,000 people retweeted the Norfolk Tides so Rip Tide, the Norfolk Tides' Mascot, had to live up to his promise.

Rip Tide took the plunge in Suffolk and jumped from a plane.

It was all part of his push for Mascot Mania.

Unfortunately, Rip Tide did not get enough votes to make it into the Mascot Mania finals, but he still came through on his promise!
