It rained so much in New Orleans that catcher Austin Nola went for a dugout swim
Saturday night was supposed to be Harry Potter Night at the Shrine on Airline, the home of the Triple-A New Orleans Baby Cakes. However, due to the rain, playing conditions were even worse than they were in the Quidditch match from Prisoner of Azkaban:

The game against the El Paso Chihuahuas was postponed, but that didn't mean it was all doom and gloom in the Baby Cakes' clubhouse. Catcher Austin Nola (perfectly named for his team) took advantage of the ridiculous water height in the dugout tunnel by going for a swim.
Let's see Michael Phelps earn a gold medal in the rainwater stroke.
The swim might have been a little silly, but hey, it beats abandoned vendor cart solo racing.
Tonight's game has officially been called due to rain. We will play a doubleheader tomorrow starting at 1pm. pic.twitter.com/sIJEQcKGeg- NOLA Baby Cakes (@cakesbaseball) August 5, 2017
