Wrigley Field's Scoreboard Operator Fell Asleep In The Middle Of A Game

The famed manual scoreboard at Wrigley Field is the last of its kind. It's a relic of a simpler time, when there were no high-definition cameras with telescopic lenses that could easily spot a sleeping man in the empty spot where the ninth inning of the Royals-Cardinals game should be.
The scoreboard operator was less than enthused with the quality of the Cubs play against the Mets this week, (although Chicago did eventually pull out a 2-1 win), so he decided to grab a little shut-eye in between updating the out-of-town scores. Unfortunately, the muckrakers in the Mets booth exposed his plan for some beauty rest.
