A swarm of bees took the sting out of Tuesday’s New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox spring training game in Tampa, Fla.
A seven-minute delay during the bottom of the third inning was caused after Red Sox left fielder Mike Carp alerted umpires that a large number of bees were congregating around the left-field wall, eventually moving into the visitors' bullpen.
At one point, Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira emerged from the dugout holding two bottles of honey in an attempt to lighten the mood.
The grounds crew at Steinbrenner Field eventually used bug spray to get the swarm to buzz off as Flight of the Bumble Bee was blared over the stadium speakers.
The Yankees ended up winning Tuesday’s game 8-1.
