Tigers forget to tarp the field before Tuesday's workout at Comerica Park
Tuesday afternoon's workout was supposed to prepare the Detroit Tigers for the postseason.
Someone forgot to prepare Comerica Park for the same thing.
When the team arrived for its 1 p.m. workout before noon on Tuesday, sections of the infield — left uncovered by the tarp since Sunday — were flooded with rainwater. After a quick conference with members of the front office, an army of groundskeepers started hastily spreading drying agent on the infield to soak up the puddles.
Head groundskeeper Heather Nabozny is on the disabled list, herself, having had knee surgery after a tarp accident a few weeks ago.
