The New York Yankees at Oakland Athletics game Saturday night was delayed for approximately 35 minutes after a bank of left-field lights went out in O.co Coliseum.

The Yankees took the field in the bottom of the fourth inning when it was pointed out to the umpires that the bank of lights was not working. Yankees manager Joe Girardi pulled his team off the field and the delay was on. Here's video:

The delay lasted around 35 minutes and then play resumed with the A's still leading, 2-1.

O.co Coliseum is the last remaining stadium in baseball that houses both an MLB and an NFL team and has had several issues with sewage in the past two seasons. The A's continue to try and build a stadium in San Jose, but MLB won't let them -- meanwhile, the team has been unable to agree with Oakland on a new stadium.
