A minor league team is inviting fans to catch Pokemon on the field
Pokemon Go has quickly become an international phenomenon, and sports fans have been catching Pokemon at stadiums across the country during games. Sadly, fans are restricted to the stands and concourses, meaning some Pokemon that pop up on the field are available only to players bold enough to bring their smartphones out during a game (which hasn’t happened… yet).

The Triple-A Durham Bulls are inviting fans on the field Tuesday for a mass Pokemon Go event, and the team is hoping to raise money for charity in the process. The Bulls (an affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays), will open Durham Bulls Athletic Park for two hours to fans who purchase a $5 ticket, and all proceeds will go to Second Chance Pet Adoptions.
