This minor league dugout flooded, so players swam in it

Saturday August 27th, 2016

Although this may evoke frightening imagery from the 1999 film Deep Blue Sea, there were no sharks in the Louisville Bats’ heavily flooded dugout on Saturday night.

There were, however, several minor league players who made the most of their situation using various inflatable flotation devices. Exactly how these items made it to the ballpark is wholly unclear, but it looks really fun, and there are no killer, highly intelligent sharks there to eat anybody.

Titanic was also a great movie that had water in it.

They even managed to take BP.

Sports are great. Stay dry.
