Yankees and Red Sox game gets bee swarm delay

Published Add your comment

Major League Baseball's spring training games are hardly the most exciting to watch with nothing really to play for, but today's game between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees was certainly a heated affair.

However, it may not be for the reasons that you might think.

There was any fighting going on, no, it was just a swarm of bees that made the match-up interesting.

This bee disturbance became so bad that the game actually had to be delayed for sometime before play could resume.

For whatever unknown reason, bees seem to like baseball. Normal scenes at field level include bees, which naturally results in stoppages in play such as the one today.

The Yankees were holding a 5-0 lead over the Red Sox, before the swarm of bees came in intent on disruption.

After the small delay took place, it's understood somebody sprayed water on the bees, which of course aggravated the situation further.

Eventually everything was sorted and the bees made their way of the field without any injuries caused.

Who says spring training is not entertaining?
