Pablo Sandoval takes selfie with fan's phone during rain delay (Photo)

Last week, the San Francisco Giants stumbled upon some rather nasty weather during their three-game series in Chicago against the Cubs.

While that’s a rather normal occurrence in the Windy City, what wasn’t normal was the botched tarp job as the Cubs grounds crew failed the properly secure it in time. That lead to the infield getting drenched in a massive, though quick downpour.

Fifteen minutes of rain resulted in a four-plus hour rain delay where members of the San Francisco Giants attempted to entertain themselves before the game was eventually called (and later overruled as a suspended contest).

Outfielder Angel Pagan was seen passing out food to those who were brave enough to sit through the rain but it was third baseman Pablo Sandoval who may have created the best memory. The ‘Panda’ as he’s often referred to sat atop the dugout for hours speaking with fans and in the process, took one of their cell phones and snapped a selfie with it.

That photo of Pablo Sandoval made its way to Reddit where it was posted on Tuesday afternoon.


Pretty neat, right? The loveable Pablo Sandoval strikes again, though, I’m guessing Tim Lincecum wasn’t thrilled with his inclusion considering it looks like he has a mouth full of a substance he’d rather not be photographed with. Also, what is Angel Pagan doing over Sandoval’s shoulder? Epic photobomb.

The Giants would eventually go on to lose the suspended game, though would take the series despite a handful of different weather delays.
