In the UK we’re used to inclement weather getting in the way of a day of sport, but inclement bees? Well, that’s a different kettle of fish.
During a spring training game in Arizona, the Colorado Rockies and the San Diego Padres encountered such an issue, when a bunch of bees attempted to steal first base, and a lot more bee-sides…

The Rockies triumphed 10-5 over the Padres, but the bees were all anyone wanted to chat about.
Some on social media saw the opportunity for some fruitful pun work.
Most reacted with subdued horror.
@Rockies I would have been gone. Like running out of that stadium immediately.

@MLB is that standard procedure for bees? to drop on the ground?

No more puns.
