Who put the bug in the umpire’s ear? We may never know. But it took a few minutes to get the bug out.

Wednesday night’s game between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox had to be briefly stopped after a moth apparently flew into the left ear of second base umpire Bruce Dreckman.

The article goes on to state the following:

The umpire stopped play in the bottom of the ninth inning and jogged to the Yankees dugout. Trainer Steve Donohue tended to Dreckman as the umpire removed the moth.

Video showed Dreckman undeterred as he pulled the insect out. Donohue even took a minute to examine it.
