Game called on account of swarming bees

By Bob Baum, AP Sports Writer | March 24, 2005

TUCSON, Ariz. --A swarm of bees invaded the field on Thursday and forced a game between the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks to be called after five innings.

The bees literally chased Rockies pitcher Darren Oliver from the mound. He kept trying to go back on the mound, but the bees would go after him again. Finally, he left for good and let another pitcher complete the inning.

There better be a video of this somewhere.

Something like this would only happen to Darren Oliver.

Must have been a "bee" game today.

Bee hives.

Yes, but one would think that the area around the field would have been swept clean of them prior to the start of the exhibition season.

I'd just go ahead and blame the Cubs for planting the bees because they played at TEP Park yesterday.

And that's exactly what they'd do if it had happened at Mesa. I can just hear the conversation it:
Flub "fan": You Sox people made the bees come and sting Sammy!
Sox fan: Sammy plays for the Orioles now.
Flub "fan": Oh......well the Sox still suck!

Too bad he lifted it right out of the MLB.com story. :o::mad::tongue:
TUCSON, Ariz. -- Little did Colorado left-handed pitcher Darren Oliver know that he would be pitching in a bee game at Tucson Electric Park on Thursday afternoon.

Kind of odd that they weren't flies. Oh well, put some more crap on the field and they'll come.

I know. I'm just trying to figure out how something like this might have happened. Most baseball stadiums try to keep the insect populations under control so that fans won't be bothered during the course of a game. Obviously, that didn't happen yesterday.
