Bat delays pregame warm-ups

SAN ANTONIO - A loose bat delayed the Spurs and Timberwolves pregame warm-ups Monday evening at the AT&T Center.
It took crews inside the arena about 15 minutes to wrangle the creature.
Finally, the Spurs Coyote, all decked out in a Batman costume captured the winged creature.
This is not the first time a bat roamed the AT&T Center in 2012 Manu Ginobili swatted down a bat during a game; that left the Spurs star needing rabies shot.
SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio Spurs star Manu Ginobili stayed away from this bat at AT&T Center.
Team mascot The Coyote, wearing a Batman costume, snared the critter that flew into the arena during warm-ups before San Antonio faced the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday.
The most recent time a bat caused a commotion in San Antonio was Nov. 1, 2009, when a bat in the arena led to a brief delay in a game against the Sacramento Kings. Ginobili swatted that bat out of the air before picking it up and carrying it off the court.
The following day, Ginobili was forced to get a rabies shot as a precaution.
This time, the bat flew over the court and lower-level seats during warm-ups. The few players who were on the court were told to return to the locker rooms.
The Coyote rushed to his changing room and donned his superhero suit -- a persona he has assumed on occasion since Ginobili's catch. Using a net, The Coyote caught the bat just below a foul line, then delivered it to security, who took it from the net with a towel.
A Spurs official said bats occasionally fly into the AT&T Center, but it rarely happens during games.
