Marlins Opener Delayed in Sixth When Cat Scales Center Field Wall and Chills on Home Run Sculpture (Video)
Mets slugger Yoenis Cespedes smashed three dingers in four at-bats in Philadelphia on Tuesday night. But who cares about that? Let’s talk about the cat that ran onto the field at Marlins Park!
The rascally feline ran out into the middle of the field during the sixth inning of the Marlins’ home opener against the Braves. Then it was like, oh sh*t, I’ve made a huge mistake, and hightailed it to center field looking for an exit. But of course, it didn’t find one.
At that point, Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton went over to the cat, which was skulking along the base of the wall, and tried to get stadium employees to open up the center field wall. However, some cowboy security guard came over and was like, “lemme jus pick dis kitty up.” And the cat was like, oh hell no, and darted off.
Eventually the cat made it’s way to the center field videoboard and just decided, “you know what, I’ve got nine lives. Let’s try climbing this b*tch.”
So it did. It climbed that b*tch. And the fans cheered. So the cat was like, “Oh you like that? Well then let me just chill out here on this weird fish sculpture then.”
Take a look:
At that point, rather than delay the game any further, the Marlins decided to just let the cat stay out there on the home run sculpture:
Update: We have suspended use of our home run sculpture for the time being & are monitoring #RallyCat, who appears to be safe at the moment.
