Ok… so I’m not sure WHY I find this amusing.. but I TOTALLY do.
Last night’s game between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox had to be stopped to give the second base umpire a chance to PULL A MOTH OUT OF HIS EAR.
According to Fox News:
The umpire stopped play in the bottom of the ninth inning and jogged to the Yankees dugout. Trainer Steve Donohue tended to Dreckman as the umpire removed the moth.
And yes… there’s video:

So you’d think this kind of stuff would happen pretty often, right? After all they’re (kinda sorta) outdoors, right?
Not really. It’s been over 10 years since the Yankees have had a “bug incident.”
The Yankees haven’t been in a bug incident since midges (small flies) attacked pitcher Joba Chamberlain in Game 2 of the 2007 American League Division Series against the Cleveland Indians.
HAHAHAHA. ATTACK OF THE MIDGES.
Anyway, if you care about this sort of thing… “New York won Wednesday’s game 7-3, with help from Giancarlo Stanton’s grand slam in the second inning.”
AND THAT’S YOUR SPORTS NEWS OF THE DAY!
