The start of the sixth inning was delayed while the cat roamed the outfield, dodging players and staff alike, before eventually scaling a wall and settling into the Marlins' home run statue.

Play resumed once the cat was safely out of the way, according to local ABC affiliate WPLG.
The Marlins suspended use of the statue for the rest of the game to protect the cat, whom they've affectionately nicknamed "Rally Cat."
