A little bit of weather-and-grounds-crew-and-player-and-broadcast-related shenaniganry for your afternoon enjoyment, coming out of Memphis, where the Iowa Cubs are playing the Redbirds.
I don’t know that I’ve ever watched the application of the tarp in a situation where it required a broadcaster’s play-by-play to even understand what was going on, but that was the case today. This isn’t groundbreaking or anything, but it was sufficiently odd and engaging that I thought you might want to watch it, too:
Play-by-play on a tarp pull? Why not. We are in a rain delay against Memphis, tied 4-4 in the 8th inning at AutoZone Park. pic.twitter.com/bjBXETaBge

Well done there by Iowa Cubs broadcaster Alex Cohen in a rather odd situation!
