During Wednesday night’s Yankees-White Sox game, and unusual interruption happened when an umpire left the field due to something in his ear.
Umpire Bruce Dreckman had some help from Yankees trainer Steve Donohue in finding and removing the problem. Which so happened to be a moth, that was still flapping around as they pulled it out.
