pigeons comericaThis goes to show: Just because you’re a millionaire athlete with enormous muscles and a solid wooden bat doesn’t mean the animal kingdom gives a shit. Two birds landed on the field at Comerica Park during the Pirates-Tigers game yesterday and left Miguel Cabrera, Vance Worley, Russell Martin and the umpire completely unable to affect their lifestyle.

Measures got increasingly desperate as Worley went bowling with the baseball and the ump came out from behind the plate to kick aimlessly. It’s funny. Watch:

“No animals were harmed.” Are you sure? That net brought out by the grounds crew looked pretty gnarly.

The Tigers won 8-4.
