This bat wasn't about to change its sleep schedule for a day baseball game
One of the best things about going to a live baseball game is getting to see the different ways fans enjoy the game. Some bring a book to read between innings while others bring portable radios to hear the local broadcast. While some fans stay in their seats the entire game, others walk the concourse taking in different views.
One thing you don't often see is fans taking a nap in the stands. But, during Sunday's game between the Indians and Yankees, that's exactly what one "fan" did.

Listen, that bat probably had a very late night on Saturday -- they are nocturnal, after all -- and just needed a lazy Sunday to get ready for the week of work ahead. You have to respect his refusal to let a baseball game get in the way of his rest -- even if he did have a front-row seat.
