Weather Wipes Out Bay Bridge Series Finale; Lays Waste To Coliseum

The final game of the annual Bay Bridge Series between the San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics was cancelled Saturday because of rain and with the bad weather came a return to a familiar and unwelcome problem at venerable Coliseum.

At least twice last season, flooding problems—including swage—ravaged the lower levels of the stadium and that flooding was back on Saturday in full force.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reported via Twitter:


At least a couple of the players tried to make the best of the situation, or at least make light of it:



The A’s have a lease with the coliseum through 2015,but the problem remains that they have nowhere else to go at this point, unless they do the unlikely (extremely unlikely) and accept the Giants’ invitation to share AT&T Park on an interim basis.
