Opossum Delays Minor League Baseball Game Because He Was Bored Eating Your Trash

The minor league game between the Quad City River Bandits and Clinton LumberKings was disturbed when an opossum decided to wander out onto the field. Apparently the little guy was tired of hanging upside down, blindly crossing streets or eating trash. It was time to show his enthusiasm for Class A baseball.

After a comical pursuit and five-minute delay it was scooped up, ironically, into a trashcan.

And thanks to the magic of this here thing we like to call the Internet, here’s another feed of the bugger running wild. Enjoy Steve Levy learning what an opossum looks like.
