Rain delays both on and off the field? The New York Yankees just can’t seem to win this past week.

Picture this: the New York Yankees are in the midst of another successful season and they have an entire week off from the game.

No, it isn’t the All-Star Break. Instead, the Yankees have gotten rained out in Washington D.C. both on the field and at the airport.


The New York Post’s Dan Martin reported that the Yankees could not escape from the manic weather in D.C. and chose to spend the night in the airport instead of opting for a hotel.

Ah, just a bunch of regular guys hanging out in the airport! Imagine walking through the airport, going to a hotel after your flight was cancelled and somehow running into the best baseball team in New York!

This might be their human moment, showing that while they are some of the biggest stars in the sport, Aaron Judge can spend a night in the airport for fun.

They had an off-day on Monday to travel to D.C. to face the Nationals. Tuesday was a shortened game due to severe storms. Wednesday was cancelled before the game even began, even though there were reports that the weather was acceptable in the evening. Thursday was an off-day and another day for ducks. They haven’t played a full game since Sunday.

Ironically enough, all of this freaky spring weather happened after Clint Frazier returned. Did Red Thunder open the skies up upon his return to pinstripes? It’s too much of a coincidence.

Anyway, their plane was able to escape on Thursday morning to Kansa City, where they hope to get back on the field Friday. Yet, rain is in the forecast for Saturday’s game.

Well, you win some, you lose some. But they won’t get the opportunity to do either if Mother Nature continues to wreak havoc on the United States. Those retractable roofs are looking better and better by the day…
