What does the grounds crew do during a rain delay? If you are the grounds crew at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, you play an imaginary baseball game.
Almost two hours into the rain delay, which began at 8:02 p.m., the grounds crew gathered on the field for an imaginary game. There was a strike out, a home run and a call to the bullpen. Especially pay attention to the call to the bullpen, where a member of the grounds crew was warming up in the right field bullpen when the game began.
The game was officially suspended at 10:30 p.m. and will resume at 10 a.m. Tuesday with Florida leading Vanderbilt 3-1 with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Watch video.
