We’ve seen many strange reasons for delaying action in sports. On Friday, the Mets vs. Nationals game was postponed due to a light outage.
However, this one was a little different. A North Dakota High School baseball game between the Grafton Spoilers and the Rugby Panthers was delayed because prairie dogs ran onto the field, video obtained by KXMB-TV shows.
The prairie dogs were eventually led off the field. The Panthers won the game 4-1.
It wasn’t quite the black cat during the Mets-Cubs game in 1969 or the black cat that interrupted Giants cowboys in 2019, but add that to the list of animal-related sports oddities.
