08:20 AM ET 03.05 | Ah, the signs of spring. Sunday's D-backs-Giants game at Salt River Fields was delayed for 41 minutes by a swarm of bees. With no score and one out in the top of the second, the Giants, who ended up 11-1 winners, had runners on second and third and Freddy Sanchez at the plate when a swarm of bees appeared in right-center field. Play was halted and as the bees continued to move toward the infield, D-backs players began to leave the field. The bees congregated at the end of the Giants' first-base dugout, and grounds-crew personnel as well as local fire officials worked at getting rid of them. "I didn't know what to do," Giants outfielder Angel Pagan said. ... "I was right next to the bathroom in case I had to lock myself in."

Dude! May 2012 is just around the corner. If the locust show up and the Nile turns red, it's time to head to the hills!
