It's like thunder, lightning,
the way you love me is frightening.
I'd better knock, on wood, baby.
Led by the Boston catcher, a few Red Sox players immediately darted to the locker room.

The Sox had a game in Baltimore around 2000-2001 where there was a massive thunderclap like that one while the game was going on. I'm 90% certain that Nomar wet himself and the guys sprinted off the field without waiting for the umps to say anything. It was one of the funnier things I've ever seen.
No baseball thread about lightning should pass without a mention of the great Shoeless Joe Willie Tasby, who got so freaked out by lightning in the outfield that he took off his cleats and put them in the bullpen, finishing the game in his stockings.
Then Chapman and Speaker walked, Joe Harris sacrificed, Willie Gardner grounded out, Chapman scoring, Dugan threw Bill Wambsganss' grounder wide and Speaker scored.
as a fan, I havent been at too many rain delays, but that has to got be very dangerous. Not everyone can fit in the concourse, or maybe they can nowadays.
Wouldn't the lightning be much more likely to hit the lights of the stadium or fans than somebody on the field?
Single loudest thunderclap I ever heard was at this game last year. There's probably something about modern stadiums that amplifies the noise, just as it does with that ####### between-innings music.
I don't see how a big ol baseball stadium isn't one of the safest places you can be in a thunderstorm. How big was the stadium in south africa where lighting hit the pitch?
