Baseball games are delayed for a lot of reasons. Bees usually isn’t one of them. In fact, Houston Astros executive Kevin Goldstein had never experienced it, until this weekend.
Goldstein was in attendance for the Corpus Christi Hooks game and snapped a picture of a large gathering of bees. The bees were in the dugout and ended up delaying the start of the Astros Double A affiliate’s game.
If you’re a minor leaguer hoping to impress an MLB executive this wasn’t your day. Short of homering every at bat, how do you possibly top bees delaying the game?
