#RallyCat: Local man gaining national attention after rescuing cat from field

You've 'cat' to be kidding me right 'meow:' kitten interrupts Royals game in STL

Cardinals CF Dexter Fowler batted in the cleanup spot for the first time this year and only the 27th time in his 1,148 games.

As you can imagine, the Twitter-verse went wild with rally cat fever.

A not-so friendly-feline decided it needed a closer look at Wednesday night's game between the Kansas City Royals and the St. Louis Cardinals.

After managing to pick up the cat, Lucas Hackmann, a member of the Busch Stadium grounds crew, was treated at first aid for the scratches and bite he received from the cat. The very next pitch, Yadier Molina knocked the ball out of the park for a grand slam, giving the Cardinals an ultimate win.

Previously, Rally Squirrel became the Cardinals' unofficial mascot during their 2011 World Series championship run.

"Our grounds crew is working on developing a stray animal protocol to ensure the safety of both crew and animal should that happen again".

Somehow during the bottom of the sixth, a stray cat managed to get on the field somewhere near the third base line.

Later that day, she texted him again saying they were having vehicle troubles and needed to rest, he told News 4 Jax. On Sunday, police came to his workplace Sunday to tell him his daughter was dead and estranged wife was in jail.

"I thought it must have been something with the scoreboard", Moylan said.

"The offense did a great job, but we just need to pitch better", Kansas City manager Ned Yost said after Wednesday night's defeat.

RT @Cut4: So the cat has to be named Yadi now, right? She wanted to keep the animal, so she told them it was her cat and quickly left.

A cat-person herself, Becky said she would happily adopt the cat, surrender it to its rightful owner if it has one, or if the occasion arises, give the cat to a member of the Cardinals.

"I waited for hours but he never came out", Harris said.

The St. Louis Cardinals are looking for their rally cat.
