When a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates grounds crew was literally engulfed by a tarp, the whole team came to his rescue. Matt Gerhardt was working to spread a tarp over the infield during a home game at PNC Park when a gust of wind blew the heavy tarp over him. In another video from MLB.com, you can see the rest of his coworkers and several Pirates players come to his rescue, covering the infield just in time for the rain to fall.
It didn’t end there. According to Sports Illustrated, the next day, Gerhardt was honored with an homage to “Tarp Man” on the infield.
