DENVER (AP) - Thousands of bees swarming around a camera bay next to the Colorado Rockies' dugout caused a brief delay in Thursday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The bee swarm suddenly appeared in the top of the fifth inning and the action on the field was halted for a couple of minutes, though the teams never left the diamond. The bees landed on a pole in front of the camera bay, forcing the camera operator to vacate his post.
The bees were contained to the field-level camera bay and umpires determined that the game could proceed.
