Tuesday afternoon’s Red Sox/Yankees Grapefruit League game at Legends Field in Tampa was temporarily delayed in the third inning by bees swarming the field. Mark Teixeira — never a player exactly noted for his sense of humor — offered up a perfect solution: honey.
It didn’t really work out too well, but at least nobody got horribly stung and landed on the disabled list.
In any event, Yankees radio play-by-play guy John Sterling had an even better idea:
Sterling: "What would happen if you throw beer (on the bees)? Do they get drunk and fall over?" // What is going on—
