A Tornado Snuck Up On The Frisco RoughRiders Baseball Game Last Night
Fun-fact: There’s a minor league baseball team in Nebraska called the “Omaha Stormchasers.” Sadly, they were not the opponent that the Frisco RoughRiders, who are the Texas Rangers’ AA ball affiliate, were playing on Thursday night, when an actual friggin’ tornado swooped toward the stadium. The view from the plate (and the stands) during the evening’s about as intimidating as it gets, as evinced by the photos tweeted out by Fox 4.
The tornado did not suck the players into a vortex, however, though the game was canceled. The RoughRiders website lists the official cause of cancelation as “rain,” which is more subtle than saying “apocalyptic clouds” on the historical record.
The storm did minor damage to the area, and four people were injured in Greenville.
