ESPN liked Minn. baseball team's rain delay pastime

- The Jackson County Central Legion baseball team in southwest Minnesota caught ESPN’s eye this week after one of their players posted a video during a rain delay. Arguably, it was a very Minnesota way to pass the time.

In a Twitter video, one of the players stripped down and flopped around like a fish in a murky pond on the baseball diamond while his teammates captured him in a net. Someone at ESPN saw it and shared it on their Instagram account. Given the size of the "fish," they probably broke some kind of Minnesota catch record, right?


If your game gets rained out, go fishing instead. 🎣 (via EastonBahr/Twitter)
