Rain delays can be frustrating in baseball, especially for a pitcher who just wants to take the mound and do his thing. During a deciding Game 3 of a Super Regional matchup between Florida and Wake Forest on Monday afternoon, the rains came pouring down enough to call the grounds crew into action with the tarp. This news was not received positively by Florida pitcher Brady Singer.
As the decision was made to delay the third and deciding game in the Super Regional to determine the final team heading to the College World Series, Singer was visibly and audibly upset as he was forced to step off the mound and retreat to the Florida dugout.
If you didn’t know any better, you would have thought Singer just got beat in Mario Kart by his older brother that never lets him win. It happens.
Florida and Wake Forest have been bothered by weather issues all weekend long in the first two games of the Super Regional, so the frustration with having yet another delay with so much riding on the outcome is understandable. Fortunately, Singer had a teammate to try and hold him back from blowing a gasket.
