Scorpions have invaded the White Sox and Dodgers spring training facility

Build your spring training complex in the middle of the desert and sometimes you’re gonna get critters. This is from yesterday:

And this is today:

That second pic looks like it was taken along the stone walls that go all around Camelback Ranch, stretching down to the Sox and Dodgers’ facilities beyond the outfield wall. Walls which, in a number of places, fans can sit on and lean on.

Which means that a call is going to go out to an exterminator sometime before games start there next week.
