The Pittsburgh Pirates took on the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park in Michigan Wednesday evening with the road team coming out on top 3-2 in extra innings.
But that’s not the story here. Instead, it’s a video the Pirates caught of the natural phenomenon in the background during the game.
Just check it out in all of its glory.
The baseball gods sure know how to be subtle. Talk about the perfect homage to one of the greatest sports movies ever made.
Of course, we’re talking about Robert Redford’s 1984 smash hit “The Natural.” For those of you who are old enough to remember or have seen he movie, it couldn’t be any more eerie to take in the video at Comerica Wednesday evening.
We join the Tigers in concluding that their cameraman needs a raise.
