Baseball is the American pastime. It also seems Alaskan bears love the action on the diamond.

Recently, a large bear halted an American Legion game in Juneau. Now, Alaskans live with wildlife, so they are accustomed to having bears wander into public settings. Other parts of the country could learn something form how these American Legion baseball kids handle the omnivore’s presence. It’s just another day in Alaska.

Play resumes once the bear makes a lap around the fence.
