Greensboro Grass-Hockey

Or I went to a baseball game and a hockey game broke out….

Rob Daniels of the News & Record has done a fine job with Thursday’s Rumble in the Grass. There’s also a story at Minor League Baseball.

I was out in the Grandstand when the first “discussion” broke out. I had my cheap (under $100) camcorder with me. The video was worthless as the teams were so far away. You really can’t make out who is who.

The second time, the camera failed. By the time I realized that the camera was not recording, the teams were walking back to their dugouts. Not that you can see anything, except a torn up infield.

We were very lucky as several fans were aware of the pitch in Kannapolis two days earlier that started this retaliation.

I don’t know what these guys were thinking – they probably weren’t thinking.
