Cat Comically Disrupts Red Sox-Marlins Spring Training Game

'TC's acting like that was a lion'

You never know what can happen at a baseball game, including in spring training.

The Boston Red Sox and Miami Marlins were cruising right along Tuesday night when in the top of the seventh, a cat on the field took center stage.

The cat darted across the field toward the Red Sox dugout, where the comedy really ensued. The cat climbed up a railing leaving the playing surface, but then appeared to lose its balance and leap into the end of the dugout almost exactly where NESN sideline reporter Tom Caron stood.

Caron quickly got out of the way, but the entire incident, which can be seen here, was quite humorous. It seemed after almost taking out Caron, the cat made its way out of the field and into the stadium.

NESN commentators Dave O’Brien and Kevin Youkilis sure got a laugh out of the event up in the broadcast booth, poking fun at Caron for acting scared of the cat.

“Come on, TC,” Youkilis said. “TC’s acting like that was a lion.”

Caron was able to laugh about it all as well, even comically playing up on social media how big the cat was. Caron, and probably the Red Sox, hope this is the final time a cat disrupts a game this season.

The Red Sox, thanks to a home run from Triston Casas, went on to beat the Marlins, 7-2, to improve to 3-0 on the exhibition slate.
