VIDEO: American Legion game in Alaska halted for ... bear delay
Baseball is different in Alaska, you see.
The following action-news video, which comes to us from Juneau, Alaska -- where mettle goes to test its mettle -- captures an American Legion baseball game at the very moment it's interrupted by the unsolicited presence of a large bear just beyond the outfield fence.
We tell stories, but we do not tell lies ...
Confirmed: A bear who is large, deadly and surely lusting for blood near the power alleys. Let us also now praise no. 13 for staying loose while also, you know, keeping one eye on the Buick-sized bear lurking just outside the increasingly penetrable fence.
Scouting report: "Repeats delivery, even in the menacing presence of bears."
