Good thing @Padres are in Arizona for #Springtraining --- Petco Park flooded today https://t.co/YxeVwo8kqA https://t.co/EhsVhA2CQb2017-2-28 02:20:24
There's no trace of a baseball field in the above photo of Petco Park, which transformed into a duck pond when San Diego received heavy rain Monday.
According to Fox 5 San Diego, Padres spokeswoman Shana Wilson said there was no grass on the field because of a Monster Jam event. Yet as shown by Petco Park's official Twitter account, the grounds crew was beginning the sodding process before Mother Nature interfered:

Laying down the first bit of sod before the rain starts 👍🏼 https://t.co/jTHxaXUEiC2017-2-27 20:41:35
At least this occurred during spring training rather than the middle of a Padres homestand. San Diego isn't accustomed to many rain delays, let alone massive flooding.
