A strange one. A sinkhole formed behind the pitchers mound on a baseball field…

A busted pipe under the infield at Rangers Ballpark has created a sinkhole right behind the pitcher’s mound.

On-field batting practice was canceled for both the Texas Rangers and Cleveland Indians while workers tried to fix the problem 2 1/2  hours before Tuesday night’s scheduled game.

Rangers officials expect the problem to be fixed in time to play the game.

Texas players went out to the field for batting practice before going back inside to take their swings in an indoor cage.

Two weeks ago, a game between Arizona and Texas at Rangers Ballpark was postponed because of unplayable field conditions. The infield was soaked during a short thunderstorm about an hour before that scheduled start while the grounds crew struggled to get the tarp on the field.
