Toledo Mud Hens Inflate Dome Over Infield To Melt Snow



The average high in Toledo for today is 41. The temp at noon was 8. The low tonight is supposed to be five-below. The highest temp over the next seven days will be around 36. There is more snow expected next weekend.

So how are the Toledo Mud Hens getting Fifth Third Field ready for baseball? You see it.

What do you do when your field is covered in snow and ice and it’s 32 days from Opening Day? You get out the heaters. It’s 72 degrees under that tarp and the snow is down 4″ in three hours.

Most of the Toledo region has been covered in about a foot of snow, with about four inches of that turning to rock.

What that field is supposed to look like in 32 days.
