Bees continue to wreak havoc in Major League Baseball. Per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Athletics’ batting practice on Thursday in Anaheim was canceled due to a swarm of bees. The A’s wrap up a road series against the Angels tonight.

This is at least the third bee-related incident in baseball this year. The start of the Giants-Reds game in Cincinnati was delayed 18 minutes on May 6 and the Marlins-Padres game in San Diego on Sunday was delayed as well.

The A’s banged out nine runs in a walk-off loss to the Angels on Wednesday so they may not need the batting practice. The club, however, has lost six of its last seven games.
