Steinbrenner field was literally buzzing on Tuesday, March 18, when a swarm of bees wreaked havoc in left field for a little over ten minutes, according to New York Daily News.
“I heard them before I saw them,” Mike Carp, Red Sox’s left fielder, said according to Google News. “I turned and I new I had to get out of there.”
Boston’s fielder, Mike Carp pointed the bees out to umpires, who stopped the game while stadium employees treated the issue with insect spray. While the issue was getting resolved both teams stood at the tip of their dugouts getting free entertainment, according to Google News.
“I didn’t know what was going on,” said Boston’s pitcher Felix Doubront, according to New York Daily News. “But I knew I didn’t want to be out there.”
“That was a first for me,” Red Sox Manager John Farrel said, according to New York Daily News. “Never saw a game delayed by bees.”
