While baseball games are fun to watch, they can also be incredibly long, and slower paced than most other sports. So it helps to occasionally have something interesting or unprecedented happen to keep fans engaged.
And when a cat hopped onto the field in the middle of the St. Louis Cardinals-Los Angeles Angels game on Thursday, fans were certainly interested.
In a video posted on Fox Sports, the cat is seen racing across the infield during the fourth inning, luckily before the pitcher releases a pitch.
The cat runs at full speed toward the third base line then leaps straight into the stands.
Eventually a stadium employee was able to reach the cat, and it was safely removed from the action.
But man, that cat can run!
Is there an opening for a pinch runner? Hire the cat.
