We now have information to answer one of the great mysteries of Friday night. Exactly how did a cat get on the playing surface at Coors Field and interrupt the game between the Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers?
The internet and social media was ablaze on Saturday morning with talk about the cat that darted onto Coors Field during the eighth inning of the Dodgers’ 11-6 win over the Colorado Rockies.
So how did the cat get on the field during the Rockies-Dodgers game at Coors Field?
In case you missed it, here’s the scene as it unfolded last night in downtown Denver. And it includes some questions on exactly what the animal was that was going on the field, if it had a collar, and if Cody Bellinger is really afraid of cats.
You will want the sound up for this one.
But, of course, there’s more to the story. Exactly how did the cat get on the field in the first place? Well, thanks to our Twitter friend @CoorsFieldCat, we have the answer.
As it turns out, the cat was making quite a scene in the area behind home plate before it made its television debut. If you’d like a clearer and shorter version of the moments right before the cat stole the show, check it out below.
If you’re wondering about how a cat was at Coors Field in the first place, it’s well known that there are several cats who inhabit Coors Field, helping take care of any rodent problems that might come along with a large place and plenty of opportunities for food around. However, the cats usually keep out of site (unless they want to make sure they get noticed by the Rockies social media team).
No word yet on what happened to the famous Friday night cat, but we know there were plenty of people who were ready to adopt it if it didn’t return to its usual environment inside the park. We’ll keep you updated.
UPDATE: The cat reportedly escaped and its whereabouts are currently unknown.
