Major Baseball League’s (MBL) Chicago Cubs’ spring training contest against Seattle Mariners on Sunday was delayed, as a swarm of bees overran the outfield.

Cubs centre fielder Jason Heyward was at the middle of the bee community, reportedly stung more than 10 times.

The game was delayed for about five minutes as Heyward fought to hold his position.

Fortunately, for Heywood, he doesn’t have an bee allergy.

The players weren’t the only ones in danger, fans sheltered under blankets and clothing to avoid their annoying neighbours.

Watch the video of Heyward run, swat and jump to avoid the pesky opponents here.
