After steady rain all day today, the Phillies/Nationals game was rained out. Back on July 8, 2007, the entire Phillies team came together during a monsoon-like storm in Denver. From the Phillies website, detailing the event:
With rain and fierce winds making personal safety a concern before the start of the seventh inning -- turning the task of covering the field into an adventure -- most of the Phillies' players and coaches did the only thing they could. Help. "The guy might have died," Greg Dobbs said. "He was trapped under there. We were watching and once it got to a point, we were all like, 'We gotta do something.'" Aaron Rowand and Chase Utley clung to a section in left field. Michael Bourn, Jimmy Rollins and Cole Hamels grabbed a large piece along the third-base line. Shane Victorino waged his own personal war near third base -- tightly gripping his section and not letting go. He won. "It was incredible," said Mark Razum, Colorado's head groundskeeper.
