Monsoon at McCoy

After a 5:30 a.m. bus ride to the airport in Indianapolis Saturday morning to close out an eight-game road trip, a rainout isn’t the worst thing that could happen.

Follwing a delay of slightly over an hour, the PawSox and Yankees were postponed because of a virtual flood at McCoy Stadium Saturday evening. Here’s how things looked after roughly 30-45 minutes of constant downpour.

This was the view from inside the home dugout with water over ankle-deep.

If you’ve been to McCoy, you know the vast amount of foul territory on either side of the infield. It was all completely flooded Saturday night.

Right with you thought there was a chance the downpor might let up, it just rained even harder.

After the game was postponed, that’s when the real fun began. I had to take off my shoes and socks, roll up my pant legs, and walk through shin-deep water (no joke) to get to my car! In certain parts of the parking lot, water was coming up to almost above the tires of some smaller cars.

The PawSox and Yankees will play their regularly scheduled Sunday game at 1:05 p.m. with a doubleheader yet to be scheduled in the near future. They’ll be back at McCoy August 14-18 and August 31 – September 3 to close the regular season.

My kids work there. They were soaked when they came home. Fortunately the car wasn’t flooded! Hope you’re dry now!

The team deserved the night off!!!

Oh My Goodness!!! When we were there on 7/2/12 it seemed like a Monsoon, too but NOTHING like this!!!
