This picture was taken at the Sunday afternoon game in the Bronx. After a lengthy rain delay which saw non-stop heavy rain, someone I was at the game with asked what they were going to do with all the water stuck on the tarp. I had no idea until I saw the grounds crew pull the tarp in the outfield dumping all the water you see forming a lake in left field in front of the tarp.
Amazingly, 20 minutes later, ALL that water was gone and all that was left was the small puddle you see in shallow right. Apparently the grounds crew missed that because the following inning a grounder was hit into right toward Seattle right-fielder Ichiro Suzuki and stopped dead in that puddle.
I had heard about the amazing drainage system when they were building the new stadium, but this was the first time I was able to see it live. Needless to say I was impressed.
