Killer Insect Night at the Jake

Watching the Indians-Yankees game, what are those little bugs bothering the players? Are the bugs those “midgies” (spelling?)?

What a plug “Off” insect repellent is getting this game!

“They came from the Cuyahoga”

Update: From an AP article on the game:

The bugs are called midges. Their scientific name is Chironomus plumosus (Linnaeus) or Chironomus attenuatus Walker

It was the midges after all.
