A Minor League Baseball showdown was stopped after a squirrel spontaneously entered the game and ran across the field on Saturday.
The squirrel, who ran after the Buffalo Bisons and Columbus Clippers players, stopped play when the field team chased the critter into the outfield.
His words rang true as attempts to approach and chase the squirrel with a bucket and net failed for over a minute.
The squirrel chase clip also included the distant sounds of the comic classic “Yakety Sax” played at the Clippers’ stadium.
You can watch the animal’s hijinks in the field below.
The Bisons, who lost a race before the animal took off at third baseline, came back to win the game 4-2.
The team’s Twitter account called the animal a “rally squirrel” as they recovered from behind to win.
The rally squirrel isn’t the only animal that has proven to be a good luck charm for a baseball team.
