Duck, duck, loose: 2 ducklings crash Tides game


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — How about this for a weekend at Harbor Park?

2 walk-off wins, a rehab assignment for Jonathan Schoop — and baby ducks! 

Two ducklings got on the field in the top of the third inning Saturday night during Norfolk’s game against the Louisville Bats. 

Grounds crew members were able to pick up the ducks and take them to safety. One even got scooped up in a batting helmet. 

There’s no word yet on whether they’ve been reunited with momma duck. 

The Tides have another game against the Bats on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. Schoop, the Orioles’ All-Star second baseman, is slated to play in that game. Also, the first 4,000 fans will receive a collectable photo of outfielder DJ Stewart.
