The workers at Angel Stadium received an ugly surprise Friday upon arriving at work.
Team officials have said that a fire pipe break led an early-morning flood that have caused damaged on six levels of the stadium.
This is not the kind of news the best team in baseball wants to hear while embarking on the final stretch of a long road trip. Starting Monday, the Angels play seven home games in seven days, three against the Miami Marlins and then a huge four-gamer against the Oakland A's.
Though, if there were ever a time for something like this to happen, it's when baseball isn't being played.
Crews currently are working to fix the damage, according to the team's Twitter account. The Angels' team store will be closed today and possibly tomorrow, though we don't for sure know that the flooding is the cause of the closure.
We'll update the story here as more information becomes available.
Tough way to start day at stadium. Fire pipe break early morning led to flooding & damage on six levels. Clean up continues. #Angels
