A baseball team cleared their waterlogged field using just rakes thanks to an ingenious method.

The University of Dallas Crusaders thought their game would be called off because of torrential rain on April 18.

Jeremy Rodriguez filmed the team pushing in unison as the final puddle was carefully guided to a makeshift drainage ditch they had fashioned from blocks.

Having got the water to the edge of the grass, it quickly runs through the funnel and down into the drain below.

Jeremy said: “To make the field playable this past weekend, takes we’re used to push the water to the warning track and ultimately to a drain.

 “The efforts resulted in the games getting played this weekend.”
