This guy somehow didn’t notice the bird-sized moth on his back

Tuesday August 30th, 2016

Insects have been making their mark on baseball recently, and I don’t like it one bit. 

The Royals have adopted a praying mantis as their mascot and the White Sox found another mantis in their dugout in Detroit on Monday. But those bugs are adorable compared to the monster at Monday night’s Reds-Angels game.

Get a load of the moth that latched itself onto Ivan De Jesus.

Gah! Both teams are so far out of the playoff picture they should have just called the game after that thing showed up.
