People Went Crazy Over This Stray Cat That Ran Through A Baseball Game

A purr-fect homerun.

Posted on

Something exciting happened in the middle of Thursday night's St. Louis Cardinals and Los Angeles Angels game. A cat scampered across the field as Cardinals pitcher, Adam Wainwright, fired up for a pitch.

The Southern California stadium's Jumbotron quickly flashed the words "Rally Cat II" as the frightened feline scampered across the field.

Rally cat @ Angel game! #crazycat

The Angels' first "Rally Cat" was a black-and-white cat that found itself on the field in 2014.

The team quickly embraced the orange cat as its "Rally Cat" for the evening.

We need a rally right meow... #RallyCat

People were pretty distracted by the cat during the game.

Other people were volunteering to be their favorite team's cat catcher.

The wayward feline even may have converted some people into baseball fans.

Angel Stadium may have to reassess its pet policy.

But unlike the Angels' original Rally Cat, this stray was taken to a local adoption agency by the team.

I have an update on the cat! He/she was picked up by the Angels and taken to a local adoption agency. They will find him/her a new home.

Turns out the cat may have been a good luck charm for St. Louis. The Angels lost the game 12–10 to the Cardinals.
