The Marlins Had A Rain Delay Because They Didn't Close The Roof [Update]

Congratulations to the Miami Marlins on finding a way to stop their first game of the season with a rain delay, despite having a stadium with a roof. They are pioneers. Pioneers who didn’t close their roof.


Since the Marlins have a domed stadium, their crew doesn’t have the proper tarps for a rain delay, because, you know, they would never have one with a roof, in theory. That’s how you get a bunch of confused, lost people in polos, doing whatever they can to try and keep the ground dry.

The delay was a reported 16 minutes.

Update: The Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson is reporting on why the roof was left open.
