Jason Heyward gets attacked by bees during spring training game (VIDEO)

An angry swarm of bees tried to disrupt Sunday’s Cubs-Mariners spring training game.

The weather was nice and everyone in attendance was enjoying themselves, so of course an external factor not related to the game in any way came in and disrupted the action.

It was so bad, that Jason Heyward attempted to hop the fence to get away from them.

Heyward said he got stung at least ten times, but luckily isn’t allergic.

And wow, this photo really captures how many bees there actually were.
