CIRCUS tents set up just outside the playing field forced the cancellation of a baseball game in Tampa.
The Florida State League game between the Tampa Yankees and Clearwater Threshers could not be played on Friday (Saturday, Manila time) because the tent of the Circo Hermanos Vazquez event outside Steinbrenner Field would get in the way of playing.
Citing the MiLB.com, the official site of Minor League Baseball, Yahoo Sports said it was determined the tent’s bright lights would be in the batter’s line of sight.
