One single bee can be enough to make some people uneasy, but a full swarm of bees is nothing to be messing around with. Chicago Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward had no choice but to run for cover on Sunday during a spring training game in Arizona between the Cubs and Seattle Mariners before the game was eventally delayed for roughly 10 minutes.

The bees proceeded to move across the outfield until reaching the left field bullpen, which had to be cleared out by the grounds crew. The Cubs relievers who normally feel safe in their spot in the bullpen were forced to find shelter elsewhere, finding temporary housing alongside the Mariners’ relievers in the visiting bullpen.

The bees¬†were no joke though. Take a look at this shot, where you can see an abundance of bees flyibng against the green wall of the outfield…

Is this some kind of omen for things to come? If frogs start dropping from the skies above, then maybe this really will be the year for the Cubs.
