Washington Nationals Can’t Get Tarp On The Field, Fans Have To Come Help: Video



The motto for the 2009 Washington Nationals is definitely “FAIL.”

The ineptitude of the Nats continued last night, as the grounds crew at Nationals Park was unable to get the tarp on the field during a rain delay against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The crew spent a good 5 minutes or so trying to move the tarp, but were unable to get enough air under it, and it stuck to the ground beneath the weight of the rain.

Cue some fans running down on the field, and eventually, after backtracking to start the tarp run all over again, everyone managed to cover up the infield. The 12 fans who remained at the game (and were not helping with the tarp) gave a loud ovation in between fits of laughter.

If fans of the Nationals turn out to be a necessity to the grounds crew, maybe some of them can help pitch as well.

Of course, all of this effort was for naught. The game never restarted, and the Phillies were declared 7-5 winners after 6 innings.

Natinals baseball: Catch the fever!

    That's one of the funniest things I've seen all day. Way to go Nats fans, helping out your incompetent grounds crew. Hope the team wasn't jerks about them getting on the field.

    Also, what's the deal with the press box? Were the reporters holding umbrellas?

    Wow. They were lucky that didn't happen in Florida or Cleveland. There wouldn't have been enough fans to help.
