D-Backs game delayed by Bees

Yeah, it conjured up images of the movie "The Swarm".

The Arizona Diamondbacks/San Francisco Giants Spring Training opener in Scottsdale, Arizona was delayed 41 minutes Sunday afternoon due to a swarm of bees.

The swarm came in from over the right-center field fence and headed towards the infield. It sent the Arizona players scrambling for cover.

They ended up stopping around the edge of the Giants dugout and it took a concerted effort from Grounds Crews and local firefighters to help get rid of them.

And yes, the above picture is from the game. We haven't found video of this yet, but we'll keep looking.

Makes those of you old enough to remember this thing of the movie...doesn't it?
