McCutchen helps free grounds crew mem­ber

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Pi­rates cen­tre-fielder An­drew McCutchen made quite a play – dur­ing a rain de­lay.

The grounds crew at PNC Park was try­ing to put the tarp on the in­field Tues­day night when the game be­tween Pittsburgh and San Diego was de­layed by bad weather in the third in­ning.

Heavy winds and rain caused the tarp to start swelling, and a mem­ber of the grounds crew was swal­lowed up and trapped un­der­neath.

McCutchen was watch­ing from in front of the Pi­rates’ dugout. The Pittsburgh All-Star saw the man get caught and quickly ran onto the field to help pull the bil­low­ing tarp off him.
