That’s a long squirrel delay.
The Twins’ Saturday afternoon home contest against the Indians was suspended in the bottom of the sixth inning when a pesky little squirrel scampered onto the field and refused to leave.
It ran around and around, evading a groundskeeper at one point, until it finally made its way down the leftfield line and hopped into the stands. The game was delayed for around four and a half minutes, which is an incredible amount of time for a damn squirrel.
As we all watched in awe, so did this dog:
The squirrel was later booted from its seat after a short conversation with an usher.
