Baseball Game Continues Despite Wildfire Going On Behind It
A raging wildfire in Colorado Springs area, which they’re calling The Black Forest Fire, has forced the evacuation of approximately 38,000 people and affects 13,000 homes over 93,000 acres, says an El Paso County spokesman, via CNN. It’s already burned through 15,000 acres, and may be the most destructive wildfire in the history of the state.
Yet, despite everything I just said these two teams decided to play on. I don’t care how many miles away that fire is, if I can see it from home plate, it’s to close. Hopefully this game didn’t go into extra innings.
