Pregame

Sixth inning. Notice the lights.

This is in the ninth inning. The bases are loaded and there are two outs. You can see Rafael Neda waiting on deck as the grounds crew tries to get the mound and third base ready to resume play.

And this is roughly 15 minutes after the end of the game.

Final thoughts: Great job by the Chiefs front office and grounds crew in a difficult spot.  They held off the start of the game because of a weather system that could have dumped a lot of rain on the field a lot earlier than it did.  Nobody wanted to burn a starting pitcher and nobody wanted a doubleheader.  Also, I am about 92.4% positive that the umpires almost called for the tarp in the top of the ninth inning.  That would have been a mistake.

Right now, It’s raining all over the world:
