Baseball is a game of focus, but it's kind of hard to pay attention when thousands of bugs are fluttering around you.

During Friday night's game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies at Busch Stadium, a horde of moths swarmed the field. Take a look at what the players were dealing with on the diamond:

The Phillies ended up beating the Cardinals, 5-1, and now everyone is probably praying that the moths don't return for their next game Saturday afternoon.
