How gullible can a baseball fan be? From AP-
The ball flattened a low-flying gull in the 10th inning and rolled past Kansas City’s center fielder and Mark DeRosa scored from second base without a throw to give the Cleveland Indians a 4-3 win over the Royals on Thursday night.
“Crazy things happen in this game,” Crisp said after Shin-Soo Choo’s line single over the second-base bag clipped the wing of one of hundreds of birds that buzz the ballpark. “It was hit so sharply, I felt like I had a chance,” Crisp said. “You never know what the heck is going to happen.”
The stunned bird flopped around for a few seconds before finally flying off.
Just another wild win at Progressive Field.
“I didn’t see it, but I’ll take it,” Choo said.
Two years ago, a swarm of bugs rattled New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain in the AL division series, helping the Indians rally.
The ballpark which has hosted the Cleveland Indians for over 15 years, is close to Lake Erie and regularly has problems with birds through the stadium. I’m surprised it too so long before one of them interfered with a game being played.
