During Saturday night’s game there was span of about 30 minutes where a couple of banks of lights failed. During this time the game was suspended and we waited for the technical gurus to fix them.
My question is simple. Why?
Did we not play baseball at sunset for decades for lighted fields? Unless the camera guys did some trick photography there was no sign of difficulty seeing the ball.
In today’s day of baseball we have spent a large amount of time trying to speed the game up. This delay was a waste of that time. Especially since we are dealing with players who play in rain, sleet, and in some fields there has even been known for snow.
