In Left Field For the Frisco Roughriders, A Tornado

Among the things you'd probably rather not see at a baseball game, coming in somewhere below a barrage of apocalyptic hell fire but slightly above an opposing team's walk-off home run, is a tornado looming over the left-field fence. It's a vision concern that might inspire panic in some.

Ah, but the Frisco Roughriders and their fans are a hearty bunch, as evidenced by their apparent nonchalance in the face of an approaching twister.

This particular tornado was reportedly in McKinney, part of the storm system that blew through North Texas last night and did minor damage, while causing four injuries around Greenville.

The Roughriders did eventually leave the field, but not because of the tornado. On the team website, they say the game was postponed because of "rain."
