Amid tornadoes touching down in North Texas, Texas Rangers players preparing for Tuesday night's exhibition game against the Mexico City Diablos Rojos got a close look at the dangerous storms from the dugout at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.
Catcher Mike Napoli tweeted a video taken from the Rangers dugout by catcher Zach Zaneski, a non-roster invitee still with the team for the exhibition game, that showed heavy winds and rain blowing the weather-protective tarp across the field.
"We were just videotaping the sky and all of a sudden it was almost like a train wreck, and the wind got so crazy inside the stadium and it started to pick the tarp up," Zaneski said. "We didn't see any funnel cloud, but you could see where it was picking the water from the tarp up and forming something."
Zach played catcher for the Mountaineers in 2005 and 2006. He is currently playing for the Frisco RoughRiders, Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers.
