AP: Omaha minor league game suspended by acid leak

A hydrochloric acid leak caused Wednesday’s night’s game between the Omaha Royals and Oklahoma Redhawks to be suspended when the stadium was evacuated.

Homes and businesses in the area around Rosenblatt Stadium, including the zoo, were evacuated when a rail car was reported leaking at a nearby yard. The Pacific Coast League game will be picked up where it left off, after the fourth inning, before Thursday’s game.

Being minor league baseball, this is likely to spawn some future wacky promotion.

This is what will happen if you institute instant replay.

Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!


(that was a parody of instant replay complaints, by the way)

What's the problem? They had four bases on the diamond to neutralize it.

Wouldn't surprise me if the O-Royals could beat the Royals in a series now.

Especially with Trey F'n Hillman managing the KC Royals.

Al Kaline to the rescue!

Chris Davis's awesomeness caused this leak.

You see, this is what happens when you fool with the chemistry of a ball club...

Should they trade for Brian Moehler?
