http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2017/08/10/rally-cat-kitten-frolicking-on-field-sets-up-cardinals-grand-slam.htmlIt's well known that cats chase birds, but a friendly feline who dashed onto the field Wednesday night at Busch Stadium appeared to be after the wrong type of Cardinal.
The feisty cat, however, may have unintentionally sparked a St. Louis rally when it sprinted onto the field with the bases loaded and two outs in the sixth inning.
The game was briefly delayed as the cat emerged from near the visitors' dugout on the third-base side and blitzed into the outfield, the fur on its tail standing on end.
Royals centerfielder Lorenzo Cain stood, smiling, with a hand on his hip as the cute critter sprinted past him.
Lucas Hackmann, a member of the Cardinals' grounds crew, then ran out to grab the stray and flinched several times as the animal tried to bite and scratch him.
On the first pitch after play resumed, St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina hit a grand slam off Kansas City pitcher Peter Moylan to give the Cardinals an 8-5 lead they wouldn't relinquish.
The tiny feline was instantly dubbed #RallyCat on Twitter.
Ha! In terms of "fibers of joy" that almost looks like the cat I'm babysitting right now. I've already posted a pic of the kitty in the dog thread (yep, that's a cardinal sin), in this thread it's more appropriate.blutto said:
I'm not sure if/how overweight he is because of all the hair, but it would be fair to say the boy has a very healthy appetite!JayKosta said:That's a BIG cat, hopefully it's not too overweight. And that long fur could make a sweater from each brushing.
