Major League Baseball's exhibition season is often a time for slow-paced games that have no bearing on how the upcoming season will turn out.
Fans who attend games in the Grapefruit or Cactus Leagues are usually treated to a wide array of talent, from inexperienced minor leaguers who are hoping to get noticed to veteran stars who are getting in their work before the start of the season.
The substitution patterns used by managers can make a game longer, and fans expect delays. But not the kind of delay that went on in the game between the Houston Astros and St. Louis Cardinals Sunday.
A car that was on the field between innings tried to leave via right field, but a television truck stopped its progress.
After a number of back-and-forth attempts to get through a tiny opening, the driver backed away and left through the left field exit.
Delay over, and the game moves along.
