On Sunday night, the Yankees were playing the Red Sox in New York, in which they lost. But that’s not what this story is about. There was a major thunderstorm in New York during the game, and a shot of thunder spooked the Yankees. In fact, it spooked the Red Sox as well.
The game was originally scheduled for 8:05 ET, but it was delayed due to the thunder shower warnings. Both teams spent the most of the four hour game waiting out three different rain delays. In which, a giant crack of thunder made these grown men jump from their seats and take cover and hold on to each other for dear life.
