Rogue kitten interrupts baseball game and wins it with cuteness

Rogue kitten interrupts baseball game and wins it with cuteness

The poor grounds crew guy, who the Post-Dispatch identified as Lucas Hackmann, was bitten several times by the feline why he tried to whisk it away. Before touching first, Molina jumped in the air and pumped his right fist to celebrate.

Ushers try to contain the cat.

Harris was questioned by Cardinals security as she left.

A woman outside the gate claimed the cat was hers, but later told KMOV she lost him near a local park. We understand from media accounts that the woman meant to take it home and care for it, but lost track of it in City Garden. "Our grounds crew is looking to develop a stray animal protocol to ensure the safety of both the grounds crew and animal should this happen again". After a field crew member ran to catch the cat and carry it off the field, on the very next pitch Yadier Molina hit a grand slam.

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 deal is being offered because of Rally Cat's surprise appearance at Busch Stadium Wednesday night.

"I heard the crowd erupt and I thought there must have been something on the scoreboard", Moylan said. "I felt good about our chances before the cat; but, after that, I knew Yadi would come through".

The cat wasn't black but it was bad luck for the Royals.

All this cat wanted was a little love from LoCain.

Cardinals fans have already taken to Twitter, calling the kitten #Rallycat. "But I sure like that one".

"I left a pitch over the middle of the plate and I paid for it", Moylan said.

"I just want to find him", she said.
