Photos: Total Solar Eclipse - Columbia Fireflies vs. Rome Braves
Yesterday I got to pick where I went to cover the the great American eclipse of 2017.
I chose minor league baseball.
Just before totality, there was a controversial call against the hometown Fireflies and the crowd didn't like it. Neither did manager Jose Leger, who took to the field for a discussion with umpires. The stadium launched a chorus of boos as one man in the crowd vigorously took exception to the call and offered him his eclipse glasses. Five minutes later, the players were laying on the field and everyone had forgotten the call. When it went dark they forgot what planet they were on.
