Royals Grounds Crew Member Gets Flattened By Tarp During Rain Delay (Video)

As fun as it may look getting to roll out the tarp on a Major League Baseball field during a rain delay, it is no easy task.  Things can get dangerous on that slick field, and before you know it, you could be flat on your face getting steamrolled by a giant metal cylinder.

This member of the Kansas City Royals’ grounds crew was left to face that harsh reality last night during a rain delay in the eighth inning of a game between the Royals and the Mariners.

You have to love the ‘take no prisoners’ approach exhibited by the Royals’ ground crew here.  One of their own has fallen down in the path of the tarp?  No worries!  Just pull the damn thing over his beaten up corpse and keep on going!  I guess lives become expendable when it comes to maintaining a dry baseball field.
