The QC River Bandits don’t need to be reminded that they’re a minor league baseball team.
But when the Houston Astros single-A affiliate’s game is delayed because of an opossum on the diamond, it’s kind of hard to avoid that tag.

The little guy shuffled onto the field, obviously thinking he was next to bat.

But he was quickly trapped by the grounds crew and put into a garbage can.
Brief 3-min opossum delay is over. Grounds crew member for QC trapped it with garbage can, another came over and picked it up by tail.

No word yet on if the possum was an intruder, a player’s pet, or just some local entertainment for the seventh inning stretch.
