Bees buzz bullpen
PITTSBURGH-About 20,000 bees were removed yesterday
afternoon from the visitor's bullpen at Three Rivers Stadium, but
a few hours later umpire Bob Engel was stung on the cheek
during a baseball game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cin-
"We missed one," said Pirate public relations director Bill
Guilfoile after Engel was stung while umpiring behind the plate
in the third inning.
The bees had gathered overnight on a post in the bullpen
area where Reds pitchers had been taking their warmup tosses
during their series with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Guilfoyle summoned beekeeper Steve Demko and asked him to
remove the bees before the Reds arrived at the park.
"He (Demko) just walked up, sprayed them with a solution of
sugar and water and then scooped them up by the thousands in
his bare hands and put them in a big box," Guilfoyle recounted.
"I had one foot out the door and I was ready to go, especially
when he started kicking the fence to loosen the clumps."
Early this year in Cincinnati, another swarm of bees caused
a 30-minute delay in a Reds game.

of the contract. It had been reported that Riggins had sought
$1.5 million for five seasons, to be paid at $100,000 annually for
Riggins, who will be entering his sixth pro year, was the
first player in Jets history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in
one season when he gained 1,006 yards on 238 carries in 1975
He will join a Redskin offense that recently acquired free
agent Calvin Hill and Larry Brown, both of whom have gained
1,000 yards in a season.
