Well, that’s one way to cause a time-out.
A dust devil crashed a softball game in Vulcan, Alberta on Saturday, throwing lawn chairs into the air and frightening a few players.
Dust devils look like tiny tornados, and are created when hot air and cold air mix with one another to form a swirling vortex of doom.
Okay, okay, they’re not that destructive, but they can cause some injuries if they’re powerful enough. The one in Vulcan had enough force to lift up a few lawn chairs, though (fortunately) not the people who were sitting in them.
The entire incident was caught on camera by Kendall Hardy, who uploaded it to YouTube a short while later.
The dust devil can be seen travelling from the parking lot into the spectator area, making a brief stop by the team’s dugout, and eventually fading out near second base.
It does not appear that anyone was injured, though there were a few shocked screams coming from the dugout as the devil made its way through.
