Baseball umpire stops game to pull giant live insect from his ear (VIDEO)
Second base umpire Dreckman was seen leaving the field of play in the ninth inning to be treated by Yankees trainer Steve Donohue in the dugout.
Footage shows the umpire using a pair of tweezers to pull what appeared to be a giant live moth from his ear – much to the amazement of the Yankees staff, who stood staring at the newly-liberated insect as it fluttered its wings.
