No One Wants to Deal with Your Rain Delay Questions

The Phillies and Reds were delayed by 50 minutes and no one wanted to be the one in charge of saying when the game would actually begin.

The weather was quite bad, and Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly said the Reds ground crew had to park tractors on the tarp in order to keep it from flying away due to the wind. Meghan Montemurro of the News Journal thought the game wouldn’t be able to start until 9:00, but they were able to get it going by 8:00.
