DENVER – There hasn’t been much “buzz” about the Colorado Rockies this season…until Thursday.

A large swarm of bees invaded the Rockies’ dugout area at Coors Field during the team’s afternoon game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The bees sent fans and cameramen fleeing in all directions, and temporarily halted the game in the top of the fifth inning.

The bees gathered in the field-level camera box and umpires eventually determined they did not pose a hazard to players.

The game continued without further delay.
