It's a, well, interesting day at Progressive Field. Yes, that is a live chicken in the outfield shagging flies. pic.twitter.com/fKTHeG5LIA— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) September 4, 2013
It was a surprisingly slow news day in Cleveland on Wednesday, considering both the Indians and the Baltimore Orioles are right in the thick of the A.L. Wild Card race.
That is, until a domesticated fowl surfaced on the playing field during Indians batting practice.
Orioles beat writer Brittany Ghiroli had the scoop.
Spotted at Indians BP: some kind of rooster, or possibly a hen. No idea why but its out in the OF with a few guys.— Brittany Ghiroli (@Britt_Ghiroli) September 4, 2013
