Cubs spring training game invaded by annoying bees

Sunday March 27th, 2016

There’s nothing more annoying than a swarm of bugs. Absolutely nothing. I’d probably walk shirtless through the streets of Milwaukee in January for 45 minutes before I willingly entered an area infested by flies.

Well, Jason Heyward and the Cubs were run up on by, like, one million bees during their spring training game with the Mariners on Sunday. Watch some footage below, if you dare.

Jason Heyward tried to leap the outfield fence and get the hell away.


​He told reporters after the game that he was stung 10 times by the bees. Ten!

​What are you even doing, bees?
