Speedy turtle invades outfield, stops play at Single-A game in Bradenton

On the same day Pittsburgh Pirates star prospect Paul Skenes made his MLB debut, the franchise’s next big attraction wandered into the outfield for Single-A Bradenton: A turtle.
In the top of the second inning, play between the St. Lucie Mets and the Bradenton Marauders was temporarily interrupted by a curious reptile scrambling across the centerfield grass at LECOM Park in Bradenton, Fla.
So much for baseball’s pace of play concerns. The sport’s changes have gotten even the turtles moving at a breakneck speed.

We’ve seen cats. We’ve seen birds… but a turtle??
