VIDEO: Minor-league game delayed when player sets off 'geyser'
On a foul ball down the right-field line, a Class A player accidentally stepped on a hose and set us a geyser-type effect -- causing an 18-minute delay.
The Fort Wayne TinCaps (Padres Class A affiliate) and Great Lakes Loons (Dodgers Class A affiliate) were doing battle Wednesday afternoon in Fort Wayne, Indiana when there was an 18-minute delay after a player set off a virtual geyser (the YouTube description says it was a "hose connection" that was set off).
No, it wasn't a Crash Davis, "I'll get us a rainout," delay. This was a complete, haphazard, coincidence on a foul ball. Check it out:
Fun times in good ol' Fort Wayne (and no one cares, but that's where I was born).
