Sunday's game between the Miami Marlins and San Diego Padres was delayed for 28 minutes after a swarm of bees settled onto a microphone attached to the netting near the home dugout.
Players began scattering with Padres rookie Josh Naylor about to bat with two outs in the third inning.
Eventually all the players left the field. An exterminator in a beekeeping suit climbed a ladder and sprayed the bees. He then used a shop vacuum cleaner to remove the dead bees, and the grounds crew tidied up the area.
