It wasn’t rain. It wasn’t thunder or lightning. It was bees.
The start of the San Francisco Giants-Cincinnati Reds game Monday was briefly delayed due to a swarm of bees flying around home plate at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.
Monday’s ballgame was scheduled to start at 9:35 a.m. PST, but the first pitch wasn’t thrown until about 20 minutes later.
“We were delayed due to bees, if you can bee-lieve it,” the Giants tweeted.
