The game was delayed for 18 minutes before continuing and the TinCaps fell to the Great Lakes Loons 15-4, but based on the reaction of the kids in the crowd, it seems like it won't be long before an enterprising minor league club owner installs some randomly activated geysers throughout foul territory, just to spice the game up a little bit.
