Bees bring baseball game to a halt
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A swarm of bees brought a Major League Baseball game to a halt this weekend.
The swarm took over centerfield during the game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Seattle Mariners.
The teams took shelter in their dugouts for 23 minutes during the third inning as grounds crews used a broom, a Gatorade cooler and a cardboard box.
The teams took the field again only to run for cover again in the fourth.
Finally, grounds crews discovered the swarm was forming a pile on the ground in the outfield. A quick blast of a fire extinguisher seemed to take care of the problem.
The Mariners went on to win the game 3-2.
