Rainstorms tend to come and leave quick in Florida. The Marlins were caught unaware Wednesday when it started pouring at the team’s new ballpark.
Despite the presence of a retractable roof, the Marlins were forced to turn to the old school tarp and squeegees following a mid-afternoon storm. Joe Capozzi of The Palm Beach Post captured some of it on video:
The storm flooded the camera well at the park and led to batting practice being cancelled. Tonight’s game against the Nationals will start on time, however.
Carlos Gomez doesn’t see any need to apologize for walk-off homer celebration
Gomez said, “It’s something I know a lot of people are talking good about this, that baseball needs more of that. And some people say it’s not good. If enjoying and having fun in baseball is bad, I’m guilty.”
He added, “I was not trying to disrespect anybody. I was not looking to the other side, not looking at the ball. I was looking at my guys.”
Gomez also said that baseball is “getting a little boring.” His advice? “Enjoy it. Have fun. It’s competition.”
