|SINKHOLE IN CENTERFIELD|
The Monday night game for the Arkansas Travelers was a sad one as they not only lost the game but they lost right fielder Brandon Bayardi in a sinkhole.

Bayardi was backing up centerfielder Bo Way when he suddenly disappeared into the ground.
Fans thought that the Travs had a fake sinkhole open up and have Bayardi fall into it as a publicity stunt. That notion was short-lived when the game was halted and emergency responders filled the outfield looking for Bayardi.
Travs manager Mark Parent told reporters "you know we had problems with sinkholes in the winter and we thought we had them fixed, we ain't giving up hope that we can find that ginger bastard Bayardi."
The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office Water Patrol unit searched the Arkansas River for several hours.

Unfortunately, the PCSO Water Unit only found Bayardi's glove.
The Travs are expected to continue the series with Friso and fans will be given a yellow armband as they enter the stadium.
Parent also stated "the team will not give up hope that Bayardi will be found safe and sound and a little pissed off."
