The Rays and Indians were supposed to play each other tonight at 7:05 EST. Unfortunately, mother nature was cranky and delayed the game two hours. First pitch was moved to 9:10 PM, the two teams played an inning and a half and then were delayed again. Things got really weird when a few hours passed without any update. Word finally came down that the two teams would begin the second inning at 12:10 AM. During the delay some really baseball stuff happened. We had a cross-team proposal.   Indians fan just proposed to Rays fan in the rain at Progressive Field — and guess what? She said yes! — Dave Haller (@HallerDave) June 1, 2013 We had two for $1 hot dogs (!).   Now the Dollar Dogs are on clearance at Progressive Field during the rain delay. TWO dogs for $1, while supplies last. — Dave Haller (@HallerDave) June 1, 2013   And we got this.
