Kudos to the Kauffman Stadium grounds crew
I must say, this is one of the most impressive occurrences of foresight I’ve ever seen. The Royals must have had about 90 seconds of advance warning because the umpires stopped play in the bottom of the fourth inning with no indication of rain at all. Not one raindrop, but there the tarp was, coming on the field.
And then the rains came, hard and heavy, with about 15 seconds to spare. A nice job all around and it certainly makes up for Wednesday, when these two teams played through the ark landing in center field. The Yankees lead 2-1 in the fourth and Andy Pettitte will eventually resume pitching to Ross Gload with one out and a runner on first.
Seriously, I’m sorry we keep talking about the weather.
