The pulling of the tarp over the infield during a rain delay in the Phillies-Cubs game was going well until one member of the grounds crew tripped and ended up trapped under the tarp. It took almost 40 seconds for the trapped crewman to emerge. As a member of the grounds crew this has to combine two of the biggest fears, tripping while pulling the tarp onto the field and getting trapped under the tarp. This unfortunate guy managed to accomplish both in one sad moment.
Very cool work … if you like maps and data. (And baseball.)
