No one could BEELIEVE what was happening.

There are bees buzzing in Florida. Way too many bees. The @Yankees-@RedSox game was briefly delayed. Due to bees.

After being delayed briefly in the bottom of the third inning, the bees were cleared out of left field.

It wasn't easy though.

#RedSox - #Yankees being delayed by a swarm of bees in left field. Grounds crew is trying to repel them with bug spray. Not really working.

And some players were even concerned for the bees' well being.

The game eventually got back underway, and the Yankees made it known they weren't phased by the delay.

After a brief bee delay - yes, bees - @fran_cervelli hits a triple off the left-field wall. #PlayOn
