Citi Field may have experienced one of the shortest rain delays ever

On a cool and rainy Thursday night, the Mets and Brewers found themselves tied at one going into the 11th inning -- not exactly the best conditions to play baseball. When the skies opened with a torrential downpour, the umpires sent the teams to the clubhouse for a rain delay. 

Only problem: nobody told the grounds crew.

"What? What's that? You want a train to pay? A Bane display? Some T-Pain to play?"

After a brief discussion and a check of the weather radar, the umpires ultimately called off the delay, bringing the players back onto the field.

In total, the rain delay lasted slightly longer than three minutes, or, just enough time to pull up an episode of Orange is the New Black and have to turn it off.
