Using a Helicopter to Dry a Wet Ballfield

Much of Texas has been drenched with rain for the past few weeks. That poses a problem at the Horner Ballpark of Dallas Baptist University. The field is too wet to be useful for regular play. So on Friday, the university hired a helicopter and pilot to dry the field by blowing on it with its wings. You can see a video of the helicopter at work here.

The efforts were successful. The park was dry enough for a game on Sunday.
