Bees swarm Padres batting cage as players run for cover (Video)
The San Diego Padres got quite the unwelcome surprise on Tuesday.
As the Padres infielders were taking batting practice, a swarm of bees suddenly descended on the cage and sent them sprinting for cover.
AJ Cassavell of MLB.com shared video of the chaotic scene:

Bee invasions are nothing new in the sport of baseball, whether it be in the American League or in the National League. But a surprise swarm attacking a casual BP session in early March definitely can’t be a good omen for the Padres as they look to avoid a seventh consecutive losing season in 2017.
