During Wednesday night’s game between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field, a break in action happened for a very unusual reason in the ninth inning.
Veteran MLB umpire Bruce Dreckman came off the field and headed to the Yankees’ first base dugout, saying there was a bug in his ear. New York trainer Steve Donohue then worked with Dreckman to remove the insect, which turned out to be a moth.
