During the Royals/Angels Spring Training game in Tempe, a swarm of bees gathered behind home plate. The delay lasted only 10 minutes. The AP recounts the unusual event:
"The bees flew in from left field and gathered on a microphone attached to the netting behind home plate, toward the Angels dugout on the first base side. Fans behind home moved back to the concourse behind the field section of seats. [Matt] Shoemaker said he was warned about the swarm by Angels shortstop Erick Aybar as the bees buzzed overhead while throwing his pregame warmup pitches. Shoemaker said left fielder Collin Cowgill told everyone on the field about the bees. The umpires waved all players off the field and about five rows of fans were asked to move until the exterminators arrived."
