Seriously? This is why we refer to baseball as a game rather than a sport. What could they have been doing that they couldn't do in the snow? Football is played in the snow. Soccer is played in the snow (with fewer clothes). Baseball is mainly 7 guys standing around watching 3 guys play monkey in the middle with a stick. They couldn't do that in the snow?

viqueenfail - you do not know what you are talking about. Come on, football and soccer are one thing. Conditions in snow playing baseball; not a chance. Wake up.

Viqueen, from experience I can tell you its really difficult to see the ball when its snowing, even flurrying. It's most dangerous to fielders. 'Eye on the ball' doesn't quite work.
