Chalk one up for the inanimate object.
Tarp won the latest battle in the never-ending war between man and tarp on Wednesday. The grounds crew at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington did all it could to keep things under control during the unplayable conditions, which postponed the evening’s Rangers-Diamondbacks game, but Mother Nature really complicated matters.
The grounds crew tried tirelessly to get the tarp down amid gusty wind and torrential downpours. The unit was rewarded for its hard work by nearly getting swallowed up.
