Over the weekend, Southern Californians became reintroduced to the phenomenon known to most as “rain.” Storms rolled through the area, forcing the first postponement of a Los Angeles Angels home game since 1995.
On Monday, to get the wet field set for the team's double-header against the Boston Red Sox, the organization deployed a helicopter to fan-dry the grass.
You would be forgiven for assuming a movie was filming some sort of baseball-related heist scene. But hey, extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures. And those measures worked: Both teams began play as scheduled around 2 p.m. PT.
The last time an Angels home game got rained out, Mike Trout was three years old, and the Los Angeles Angels were called the California Angels.
