Triple-A game cancelled due to lost luggage by airline


In your WHAT?! story of the day, a Triple-A baseball game was cancelled due to lost luggage by one team’s airline. No really, it happened. Thursday night’s game between the El Paso Chihuahuas and Tacoma Rainiers was cancelled after Tacoma’s airline lost their luggage.

Last night’s Pacific Coast League game in El Paso’s Southwest University Park was postponed after the equipment for the visiting Tacoma Rainiers was lost by an airline.

The players arrived with no issues, but the visiting team’s luggage, equipment and uniforms did not. The El Paso Chihuahuas rescheduled the game for a noon Saturday start; tonight’s game is expected to go on as scheduled. Bonus: the Thirsty Thursday promo will be honored tomorrow

The Rainers website says they travel using Alaska Airlines, meaning they went from SEA-TAC to Alaska, on their route to El Paso, and some lucky people in Alaska could be playing baseball with some nice Triple-A equipment.

Bizzare, funny, but true, and seems only could happen between the Chihuahuas and Rainiers in Triple-A baseball.
