A swarm of bees invaded an MLB game, forcing a 20-minute delay

HCBA Members could do this

“Two fans quelled the furor by removing the queen bee by hand from the swarm which covered the microphone above the dugout,” the AP reported. “The queen bee was placed into [a] makeshift cardboard beehive, and quickly was joined by her swarming workers.

“Walter Howard, a 26‐year old owner of a Cincinnati extermination firm, and Floyd Hastings, a bank auditor from Fort Wright, Ky., with a beekeeping background saved the day. Their efforts produced a standing ovation from the crowd. Hastings was stung eight to 10 times as he scooped the bees with his bare hands into the hive.”
