Everyone is trying to "catch 'em all."

Pokémon Go, a new smartphone augmented reality game, is taking the world by storm. People are stopping in the middle of the street to catch creatures such as Squirtle, Eevee and Weedle.

The game is affecting people's lives so much that the Triple-A Durham Bulls, a minor league baseball affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, are inviting fans to catch Pokémon on Tuesday at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

The Bulls will open the park for play from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., charging $5 per fan. The proceeds will go to Second Chance Pet Adoptions, an organization that seeks to provide homes for homeless animals.

Sports stadiums have proven to be hot spots for Pokémon, with creatures popping up at or around the fields. With the Bulls opening their park for two hours, the potential number of Pokémon to be caught is surely enticing for players.
