Snowball Fight Goes Down at Gardner-Webb vs. Dayton College Baseball Game

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterFebruary 18, 2013

Watching two college baseball teams go at each other with snowballs is just good old-fashioned, down-home fun. We encourage you to watch the above video with a mug of hot cocoa while a freshly made apple pie cools on the counter. 

Yahoo! Sports spotted this video of the sixth inning of Saturday's game between the Gardner-Webb Runnin' Bulldogs and Dayton Flyers. 

A couple of obvious points to the video: It's very cold in Boiling Springs, N.C., and we in warmer climates are now jealous of your opportunity to launch into a snowball fight. 

The moment is all thanks to the rare snow delay, one that would ultimately force the game to be suspended. The two teams were left to meander around, waiting to receive word on if they would resume play. 

One thing leads to another, and some baseball players remember they are surrounded by potential snowballs. 

From there, we have ourselves a far more delightful baseball brawl than we are used to. 

You don't enter a snowball fight against baseball players lightly, because some of these guys are rifling these ice pellets like they are trying to throw out Andrew McCutchen at home. 

Rain delays are awful—I doubt anyone will disagree with that—but we all have to admit snow delays are simply the best.
