JUNEAU, Alaska, June 17 (UPI) -- An actual Bad News Bear interrupted an American Legion baseball game in Juneau, Alaska, on Sunday.

Local Larry Johansen was filming the 5th inning of a game between West Post 1 and Juneau Post 25 when players spotted a large black bear walking along the outside of the fence.

A caption to the YouTube video notes that officials halted the game until they "were sure what the bear's intentions were."

Luckily, the furry baseball fan passed by the field without incident.
