It was pretty funny seeing the Cardinals' "rally squirrel" run through the batter's box during a Roy Oswalt pitch earlier this week, but to the St. Louis Cardinals stadium operations personnel, it's no laughing matter.
In fact, they're setting cage traps with peanut butter so that the squirrels don't cause a stir in the NLCS if the Cards make it past the Phillies on Friday night in Philadelphia, according to CBS.
"From a stadium operations standpoint, we need to insure that the game can go on without interruption," said Joe Abernathy, Cardinals vice president of stadium operations.
"We’ve got a couple different reports where we’ve seen two, maybe three, squirrels," added Abernathy. "It’s probably a small family that’s in here."
