Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier didn’t quite get attacked by a rogue pigeon at Yankee Stadium Friday night, but it did show him who's boss.
During the 12th inning of the Rays-Yankees game, the feathered fiend swooped down on Kiermaier while he was standing at first base.
Maybe the Bronx bird is a Yankees fan but, more likely, he was mad that the 4-1/2 hour game was cutting into his nest time..@KKiermaier39 drives in a run – and the bird ruins EVERYTHING: http://t.co/9UJ8BoDhWs pic.twitter.com/i7DAXT08yX— MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) July 4, 2015
You know. Waking up early, getting the worm, desecrating a few statues and all that stuff.
