The Umpire Said ‘Play Ball’


As the baseball game between the NY Mets and the Texas Rangers began on June 14th, the umpire said the words that start the game.

He said Play Ball.

But as the rain poured down and the tarp was brought out to cover the field, it became clear that the rain wasn’t going to stop anytime soon, and the game would be cancelled.

The Texas Rangers listened to the umpire. After all, he did say to Play Ball, and play they did.

What a wonderfully spontaneous act for grown men to display. Who knows, perhaps we’ll all start to play.
