NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) – Yankees minor league manager Luis Sojo has had many unexpected visitors in his office, including late New York owner George Steinbrenner and one-time teammate Bernie Williams.

But nothing quite like this.

After a recent game involving his Class-A Tampa Yankees, Sojo had his most unique guest. Sitting on the couch as he entered his office was a raccoon.

Sojo quickly departed after seeing the animal staring at him.

“I never moved so fast in my life,” Sojo said before Tampa’s 10-3 win over Jupiter Wednesday night. “You don’t expect something like that.”

It is possible that the raccoon came into the ballpark from Al Lopez Park, a recreational area across the street that has lakes and wooded areas.

Although the raccoon has not returned after being coaxed out of the office, Sojo is staying on-guard just in case.

“I check everywhere (in the office),” he said with a smile.
