Bear at Alaska Baseball Game Makes for a Lively Intermission (Video)

A bear interrupted a baseball game in Alaska over the weekend, an exciting but nervous affair that was all captured on video.

Local NBC affiliate KTUU Anchorage reported that Larry Johansen was filming and broadcasting an American Legion baseball game on Post25Baseball.org Sunday when what appeared to be a black bear wandered by the outfield fence.

"Big bear out there," a man in the crowd can be heard exclaiming as one by one the players tense up and look over their shoulders. Some of the infielders move further in, away from the creature but, as it becomes clear the bear isn't going to make its way through the chain-link fence, an umpire and a few of the outfielders take a few steps forward to get a better look.

"The game was halted until we were sure what the bear's intentions were," wrote the uploader of the video on YouTube.

The June 15 game pitted the American Legion's West Post 1 and Juneau Post 25 against each other, and Juneau was winning 10-1 in the bottom of the 5th inning when the bear showed up.

Once the bear wandered back into the woods, the excitement subsided and the game recommenced. According to Post 25 Baseball, Juneau Post 25 ultimately won 11-1.
