Softball: Maryland Terrapins vs Seton Hall

During the consolation wrestling matches I snuck out to the softball stadium to take a look at the Terrapins game against Seton Hall. I grabbed my coat, a hat, and my gloves on my way out to the stadium while Greg just headed out. The weather was extremely variable and the sun was going in and out of the clouds. There were also rain clouds in the air.

I got in about an inning or so before the weather really opened up. Since I had the D3 (a $5000 camera) I was being extremely cautious with the rain. As soon as I saw the first drop I headed for the media area. I really sprinted once I reached the top of the bleachers and fortunately made it into the media area before the rain started in earnest.

To my surprise it started hailing shortly after the rain came in. I was amazed to see it hailing so hard - the pellets practically covered the infield. About 20 minutes later it all let up and we were able to resume the game.

I got another 3 innings in before it started raining solidly and I was forced to pack it in. I covered up my lens and body with my jacket but eventually it was raining so hard that I had to call it quits. I was kind of happy about it because I didn't want to stick around outside and risk getting sick(er).

Al was at the softball game and we talked for a little bit. He headed home though because of the weather.
