The Angels deployed a real, actual helicopter to help dry the outfield before Monday's game
You'd probably assume that the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim -- you know, the team that plays in Southern California -- do not have much experience with rain delays. And, well, you'd be right: Sunday night's rainout against Boston was the first in 20 years. (To illustrate, the Batman suit still had nipples. Never forget, America.)
As it turns out, Angel Stadium wasn't built with heavy amounts of rain in mind (understandable, given that it hadn't been an issue since the Clinton administration) and on Monday afternoon the outfield was still saturated with water. So, needing to dry things up in a matter of hours, the team did what logic would dictate: They got themselves the most gigantic portable fan they could find.
Sure, bringing in a helicopter (!) to hover just above the grass may seem a bit dramatic, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia is here to inform you that this ain't no thing. As he told MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez:
When the zombie apocalypse comes, I want Mike Scioscia on my side.
