We’ve seen it in the major leagues and we’ve seen it on high school fields. Cats (or dogs for that matter) will never discriminate on which type of ballpark they decide to make an appearance on. But one thing that usually happens, especially at the major league level is that when a cat decides to show up on the field efforts are made to remove the cat immediately. If that means chasing the cat down, so be it.
However, in the Northwest league, the Single-A Hillsboro Hops’ outfield and bullpen were charged with corralling a cat patrolling the outfield during their matchup with the Everett AquaSox. Eventually player Austin Platt tracked the cat down and all was normal again but this was a rare thing to see.
