Bear Shows Up To Baseball Game In Alaska, Delays Play (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Rain delays? That's cute.

In Juneau, Alaska, it's bears that postpone baseball games.

During last Sunday's American Legion match pitting West Anchorage against Juneau, both teams were surprised when a sizable black bear appeared in the bushes just past the outfield. According to KTUU, the fuzzy fellow appeared during the fifth inning and was immediately heralded as a "bad news bear."

"The bear ... was just hoping to find some peace and quiet," writes Archipelago Webcasting, which posted a video of the incident on YouTube. "The game was halted until we were sure what the bear's intentions were."

Joked one commenter on YouTube, "It's a scout from the Chicago Cubs organization."

As with rain delays, the players had no choice but to grin and "bear" it.

WATCH the unbearable delay, above.
