Chicago Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward is apparently despised by members of the bee community.

During his team’s spring training contest against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday, the 26-year-old was harassed by a swarm of bees.

Heyward did all he could—run around, swat them with his glove, leap up on the fence—but nothing worked. According to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com, Heyward endured substantial pain:

The game had to be delayed for a few minutes, as the horde eventually made its way into the stands.

In the bottom half of the inning, Heyward bombed a two-run dinger. Still, Seattle won, 12-9.
