Bear pitching!  How can this be?

Little known fact: the real reason Bill Buckner let the ball go through his legs is because he was distracted by a San Francisco Bear in the grandstands.

Rule 1.11

(a) (1) All players on a team shall wear uniforms identical in color, trim and style, and
all players uniforms shall include minimal six-inch numbers on their backs.
(2) Any part of an undershirt exposed to view shall be of a uniform solid color for
all players on a team. Any player other than the pitcher may have numbers,
letters, insignia attached to the sleeve of the undershirt.
(3) No player whose uniform does not conform to that of his teammates shall be
permitted to participate in a game.


Well, I guess this rule does technically apply, assuming the bear wasn't wearing a uniform.

Never see this sort of thing in the pros.

The bear was later arrested on one count of being a bear and one count of accessory to being a bear.

Came for a "Bear" reference, leaving extra satisfied with the Buckner bit thrown in for good measure.

There's video, but that link makes Buzzfeed look like Frontline.

Marginally better link:

Didn't this happen last week in North Carolina or something? Bears have really taken a shine to the game lately.

No grass on the field, can't play ball.

I hope that camera operator gets eaten by a bear.

I will continue posting this pic of Kevin72 and some guy on crutches as long as FARK keeps greenlighting bear stories.

And Kershaw throws a no-hitter. I guess it's a little easier when you don't have to worry about bears in the outfield.

They never delayed a game in Alaska over that, as long as the starting pitcher wasn't the alert pilot.

I notice they got rid of the language about the size of the front pocket. It's in some older rulebooks (late 60s, IIRC).

You can't keep your ace out of rotation.
