Last night’s Dodgers / Diamondbacks game in Arizona got delayed two hours after a swarm of BEES set up shop on the netting behind home plate.  They had to wait for a beekeeper to show up and remove them.  (Here’s a video.)

A pest control guy named Matt Hilton was at his son’s tee-ball game when he got the call.  He said he thought he was just removing bees from somewhere in the stadium . . . not on the field in front of thousands of people.

He got a standing ovation when he arrived, hopped on a scissor lift in a beekeeper’s suit, and vacuumed them up to relocate them.

The Diamondbacks ended up bringing him back out onto the field one more time after that to throw out the first pitch.

(Here’s the first pitch, and here’s a longer video with an interview at 2:18.  The Diamondbacks ended up winning the game 4-3 on a walk-off home run in the 10th.)
