Heavens open up as Manny Machado takes batting practice

It started raining during batting practice at Camden Yards and the Orioles all headed inside the dugout tunnel.

The heavens opened up as Manny Machado’s group was taking BP. You can insert the joke here. At least one Oriole did.

As the players ran inside one veteran decided to give the 20-year-old phenom some grief.

“It’s OK, Machado got his swings in, that’s all that matters,” the veteran shouted as his teammates laughed and Machado smiled. “I didn’t get mine in, but Manny got his licks in.”

Looks like Machado is quickly becoming an Oriole.
