Cador stated to The Daily Advocate the following
“In the seventh inning, we encountered lightning, we made the umpires aware that there was lighting. They acknowledged that they saw it and at that time did nothing about it. Then in the eighth inning, they saw it again and pulled the teams off the field for 30 minutes.
When we came back out, there was still constant lightning. They wanted us back on the field in 10 minutes and I told them I didn’t want to put my players in harm’s way.”
I saw at the College World Series in 2010 a situation where a game was nearing the end with lighting all around the stadium but the umpires refused to bring the teams off the field. It was extremely dangerous and everyone in the press box couldn’t understand why the team’s were not pulled off the field.
