Spring Training 2017: Reds-Indians game briefly delayed by rogue sprinklers
A different kind of rain delay
You’ve heard of rain delays. You’ve heard of bee delays. You’ve heard of power outages. But have you ever heard of a baseball game being delayed by the sprinkler system? If not, then Saturday provided the world with something new.

The big takeaway here -- other than the fact you never know what you’ll see at the ballpark -- is how the players seem almost indifferent about the whole thing. Stop making those of us who don’t like walking outside when there’s a light rainfall coming down look bad, guys.
The Indians held onto that 8-2 lead, by the way, putting them at 1-0 for the spring.
