Photo: Harrisburg minor league baseball park floods in wake of storms

The rain that pounded the greater portion of the Eastern Seaboard this week caused confusion and cancellations for the Nationals. But that was nothing compared to what the Class AA Harrisburg Senators experienced at Metro Bank Park, which, unfortunately in this instance, is situated between two rivers on City Island in Harrisburg.

The stadium has completely flooded, as stunningly captured in the photo taken by Tony Wagner and shared by Harrisburg third baseman Tim Pahuta on Thursday on his @Pahooter44 Twitter feed. The picture is after the jump.

The Senators had reached the Eastern League playoffs by virtue of winning the Western Division. They won homefield advantage and were scheduled to begin their series against Richmond with two games at home Wednesday and Thursday. Instead, the five-game series will begin Friday and the entirety of it will be played in Richmond.

“They’re going to have to strap on in a foreign ballpark for the series,” Rizzo said. But we’re confident in the guys, that they’ll take it to another level. Hopefully, they can win.”
