The Texas-based Midland RockHounds are the Double-A affiliate of the Athletics, and on Wednesday night a scary looking sandstorm approached their ballpark.
For all us greenhorns, we never get to see these things up close — or even at all.
Yup. Sure looks like the umpires had a little double-duty with their base brushes last night.
