Rain delays led to an epic dance-off between these two baseball teams
That’s one way to keep the crowds entertained.
The last thing most spectators want when attending a sports match is for it to be delayed by rain.
Much like the Brits’ beloved cricket, the length of a baseball game means intermittent rain can drag out a match.
However, the crowd at the Chicago Cubs vs the Arizona Diamondbacks game on Thursday evening were entertained through a rain stoppage by none other than the teams’ relief pitchers.

During the second of three rain stoppages, the teams’ relievers had a dance-off, and it got pretty weird.
From a Cool Runnings tribute to the upside-down man, the players showed they are good at more than baseball.
The videos make for amusing viewing – the Diamondbacks clearly took the award for best routine.
They didn’t just win the dance-off, they also sealed a 10-8 win over the home team at Wrigley stadium.
More rain please!
