Video: Reds’ stadium struck by lightning, scares players, umpires

If there’s one thing I know about baseball, it’s that it and lightning do not mix whatsoever. Whenever there is a storm in the area, the umpires take extra care to make sure the players and fans are safe.

At the Cincinnati Reds’ and the Milwaukee Brewers’ game at Great American Ball Park on Saturday, the team was waiting around during a lightning delay. Everyone was minding their own business when lightning struck the light pole at the stadium and scared everyone and their mothers in the stadium.

It was a pretty cool and funny sight to see, but I also realize how lucky they are that someone didn’t get hurt yesterday.

Wow. What a sight to see. Let’s hope that the recent storms don’t affect anymore games over the next few weeks. Let’s also be thankful that no one got hurt at the game as well.
