| Top stories | Google News
This is the worst sight baseball fans can see: a tarp.
One was deployed to Truist Park in Atlanta ahead of Game 3 of the World Series between the Braves and the Astros, as rainy weather forced the teams to suspend batting training.
The game still appears to be going as planned, with MLB not yet making any announcements regarding a postponement. However, the Weather Channel says Atlanta is expected to see occasional rain until 8 p.m. ET, which is around the scheduled time for the first pitch.
