That's a lot of water. 

According to a Padres spokesperson, the rain had inundated the park so quickly on Monday that the park's drainage system couldn't keep up. The field crews don't expect any lasting damage to the field, and they were planning on laying new sod next week anyway.

Luckily for the Padres, their Spring Training facility is far away in (very dry) Peoria, Arizona. 

But hey, underwater baseball could be a cool new sport?
