The Kansas City Royals’ game against the Tampa Bay Rays was postponed on Thursday night after heavy rain turned to snow during the middle of the fourth inning…
Kansas City has had three games postponed due to weather this season, and another that was set back a couple days by the search for the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings last month.
The Rays had a game against Boston rained out on April 12.
There was some hope that Thursday’s game would resume, even while fat flakes started to stick on the outfield grass and Kauffman Stadium started to resemble an enormous snow globe.
When the delay reached the 2-hour mark, the rain turned to snow, and members of the Rays and Royals started popping up in their dugouts to take pictures of the flakes falling.
The last time there was measurable snow in May in Kansas City? Try May 3, 1907.
All I could think was…
THERE’S NO SNOW IN BASEBALL!
