A Huge Swarm Of Bees Interrupted An MLB Game, But Of Course A Retired Beekeeper Was There To Save The Day

Frankly, every game should have one in attendance.

For all intents and purposes, spring has sprung. The weather is warming up, the collective mood is lifting out of the doldrums of winter, and spring training is fully underway. Baseball might not be the most popular sport in America anymore, but it's always going to have a loyal following, and there's nothing that signals the turn of the seasons for fans more than spring training. That's when teams set up shop in the warmer areas of the country, such as Florida and Arizona, and families roll out in droves to relax and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere in preparation for the upcoming summer.

Unfortunately, warmer weather combined with sticky snacks can bring unwanted swarms of non-humans. In the case of a recent game between the Kansas City Royals and Colorado Rockies, that particular swarm was a bunch of bees. Swooping in on the stadium, they briefly interrupted game action, settling on a cooler near the Royals' bench.


Hey, that looks fun.

Not disturbing at all.

Royals Manager Ned Yost wanted these bees handled humanely though.

Luckily, a retired beekeeper was in attendance and stepped in to deal with the situation. Barehanded.

What would have happened if he wasn't there? Who knows? The guy's a hero.
