SAN ANTONIO — A cold-blooded visitor made its way onto the field at Wolff Stadium Friday, apparently to watch the San Antonio Missions defeat the Frisco RoughRiders.
A large snake slithered into center field during the eighth inning and brought the game to a brief halt. In a video shared to Twitter by the Missions, grounds crew take a few minutes to corral the snake using a rake and a bucket.
The snake's appearance marks the second time this week an animal has made its way onto the field during a Missions game.
During Thursday's win over the RoughRiders, a small kitten appeared by the left-field wall. Crewmembers were quickly able to wrangle the feline. The Missions shared video of Thursday's incident to Twitter as well.
The Missions won both games and are riding a 10-game win streak, so the animals' appearances can only mean good things to come for the AA Minor League baseball team!
