Just like in cricket or tennis, once the rain starts falling at a baseball game it’s a race against time to protect the playing surface.

And if you happen to be one of the ground staff charged with getting the covers on quickly, it can be a dangerous business.

Witness this, which happened when the rain started pouring in a match between the Washington Nationals and the Philadelphia Phillies.

The poor guy never stood a chance.

Like pretty much anything on the internet, it was a good excuse to share some cute animal gifs.

But it has to be said, they look a whole lot cosier than that poor groundsman.
