"Runaway Rodent" delays game

Posted:

NBC News--Things got a little "squirrely" Tuesday in Lawrence, Kansas as the Jayhawks' baseball team took on Wichita State.

A squirrel got loose in the infield during the top of the 4th inning, causing a brief delay. As the video shows, the "runaway rodent" wasn't going to be captured easily.

In fact, the squirrel even tagged the second base bag, as he eluded his first two would-be captors. Eventually, Wichita State's Tyler Baker used his batting helmet to bring the rampaging squirrel into custody and escorting it off the field.
