Photo: Massive Storm Bears Down on Minor League Park in Texas
The Frisco RoughRiders, the AA affiliate of the Texas Rangers, cancelled their game last night due to bad weather, which, based on the above photo, is quite an understatement.
The frightening storm is what meteorologists call a "tornadic supercell," which is different from a full blown tornado, but still not the kind of thing you want headed right for a stadium full of people. The team has rescheduled their game as a double-header with the Northwest Arkansas Naturals on Friday, when the weather projects to be slightly less apocalyptic.
Sorry fans, but tonight's game has been postponed. Double-header action tomorrow with games at 4:05 and 7:05. See you then!
