Rays play Looney Tunes on Tropicana Field scoreboard during power outage

Rays play Looney Tunes on Tropicana Field scoreboard during power outage Photo:

The Tampa Bay Rays were able to keep playing on Sunday during a thunderstorm, thanks to the fact that Tropicana Field is indoors. The bad news is, thunderstorms can cause power outages, which is exactly what happened at Tropicana Field during the storm on Sunday.

Play was delayed for 19 minutes during the third inning. Luckily, the Rays had a pretty good solution to keep fans entertained during the partial power outage: Playing the baseball-themed Looney Tunes episode on the Tropicana Field scoreboard. 

Bugs Bunny seemed to energize the Rays, as they partially made their way back from a 5-0 deficit against the Los Angeles Angels. But they still ended up losing, 7-5.
