Crash Landing

SANTIAGO, D.R.–So I went down in front of the Mexico dugout to get some pictures of their fans–always the craziest at the Caribbean Series–and when I came back, there was a hole in the roof of the press box.

Apparently while I was gone, a TV cameraman above the box simply fell through the ceiling, crashing on top of several reporters.

The good news is everyone is OK. The bad news is, we were in an enclosed room before, limiting the amount of noise from the stands somewhat. But now, with a 10-foot-plus hole where the ceiling used to be . . . well, let’s just say it’s a little bit louder.

Oh, and the game? Mexico and Licey are tied 1-1 after four innings.
