When There’s a Rain Delay, Boys Will Still Play
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — Members of both the Washington Nationals and the visiting Florida Marlins had some fun during Saturday’s rain delay.
The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05 scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p.m.
Bryce Harper spent part of that time playing dress-up, posting a picture of himself on Twitter around 9:30 p.m. wearing a helmet and reflective safety vest over his uniform.
The Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton took things a step further, uploading an Instagram video of himself doing his best runway walk and posing.
“This is what happens when you’re cooped up for 6 hours in a rain delay!” he wrote.
The game was rescheduled as part of a split doubleheader Sunday with the first game starting at 1:35 p.m. and the second at 7:05 p.m.
The Nationals have won 12 of 14 and began the day five games behind Cincinnati and Pittsburgh for two NL wild card spots. Pittsburgh defeated the Reds 4-2 Saturday night.
The Marlins have lost six of seven.
