Meanwhile, at Steinbrenner Field, where the Tampa Bay Yankees were scheduled to host the Clearwater Threshers last night . . .
Tonight’s @TampaYankees game ppd because blinking lights from circus set up beyond OF interfered w/ batters’ vision.

Hard to believe an affiliated minor league game is cancelled because there is a circus tent in the batter’s eye. pic.twitter.com/2ehpuTUljb

That’s in the parking lot of Raymond James Stadium. The circus: Circo Hermanos Vazquez. Which, according to Wikipedia, which is never wrong, is “one of the big five out of more than four hundred Mexican circuses.” So I presume it’s a good show with all of the usual circus thing.
But really: wouldn’t it be a trip to see, say, the 375th-rated Mexican circus? What do you suppose that’s like? I bet it’s life-changing.
