A blog about a cat that ran onto the field during a Yankees game and got away safely.

Checkout this video:


On May 15, 2019, a black cat ran onto the field during a New York Yankees game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium. The feline halted play for a few minutes as stadium personnel unsuccessfully tried to capture it. The cat evaded capture and ran back into the stands, disappearing from view. It was never found and its whereabouts remain unknown.


The internet was set ablaze when a video of a cat running onto the field at a Yankees game went viral. The cat ran around for a bit before being apprehended by security and taken off the field. Fans were both amused and scared by the incident.

The Yankees

The New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City. They compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. They are one of two major league clubs based in New York City, the other being the New York Mets of the National League. The Yankees began play in the 1901 season as the Baltimore Orioles (no relation to the modern Baltimore Orioles). In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise after it ceased operations and moved it to New York City, renaming the club the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders were officially renamed the Yankees in 1913.

The Cat

While the Yankees were playing the Kansas City Royals on July 24, a black cat ran across the field at Yankee Stadium. The cat caused a delay in the game, and some players even said that it brought them bad luck. After the game, the Yankees released a statement saying that the cat had been safely removed from the stadium and was being taken care of by animal welfare officials.

The Incident

The cat ran out onto the field during the game and was promptly grabbed by a security guard and removed from the premises. The cat was unharmed and was later released back into the wild.

What Happened?

Some fans attending the New York Yankees game last night were left wondering what happened to the team’s mascot, Scooter the Cat. The beloved feline, who is known for his appearances at Yankee Stadium, was nowhere to be seen during last night’s game.

Reports began circulating on social media that something may have happened to Scooter, and these reports were later confirmed by the team. In a statement released last night, the Yankees said that Scooter had been involved in an incident and was being treated by a veterinarian.

The details of the incident are still unclear, but it appears that Scooter somehow ended up on the field during the game. He was then chased by one of the team’s players, who was trying to catch him. It is not known at this time if Scooter was injured during the incident.

We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.

The Aftermath

As the dust began to settle, it became clear that the cat had not fared well. It was rushed to the hospital, where it was treated for a broken leg and multiple cuts and bruises. It is expected to make a full recovery, but will never be able to play baseball again.

The incident caused a stir on social media, with many people asking how such a thing could happen. The Yankees released a statement saying that they were “saddened” by the incident and would be taking steps to prevent anything similar from happening in the future.

This is not the first time an animal has been hurt at a Yankees game; in 2015, a seagull was struck by a foul ball and later died of its injuries.


It is still unknown what happened to the cat at the Yankees game. Theories abound, but there is no clear consensus. Some believe that the cat was captured and taken to a shelter, while others believe that it simply ran away and is now living a happy life somewhere else. Whatever the case may be, it is clear that the cat’s disappearance has left a hole in the hearts of Yankees fans everywhere.
