Swarm of bees delays Giants vs. Diamondbacks game in Arizona

Back in March, a Yankees-Red Sox spring training game was delayed by a particularly large swarm of bees in the leftfield corner. We all had a chuckle, especially at Mark Teixeira's less-than-informed method for getting rid of the bees. But the bees are back, and in greater numbers. This time, they popped up in Arizona, taking over centerfield at Chase Field and demanding honey-based tribute from the human underlings. Or they probably did. Anyway, as you can see above, the bees made for a bit of a nuisance for the players on the field, including the Diamondbacks' A.J. Pollock, who somehow wasn't deterred by the killer swarm in front of him as he went for the catch.

The bees were eventually dispersed, though no thanks to this umpire, who definitely walked away from that muttering, "I don't get paid enough for this."
