Script sample from
Cloud Seeding: The New Moneyball
(Soon to be a major motion picture)
Home Team: “Oh shit, we’re losing in an important game, and it’s cloudy but not about to rain. Fire off the rockets!”
Away Team: “Why are they shooting off fireworks? We’re killing them!”
Home Team: *Evil Laugh*/Delay the piss out of the game
Sky: *Torrential Downpour*
Umpire: *Calls Game*
Away Team: “That’s some bullshit”
Home Team: “Finally there’s a reason to live in a place with clouds. Screw you Angels!”

My wife and son were at a lovely game of baseball between the Texas Rangers and Oakland Athletics on May 11, 2011 that was postponed then cancelled on account of rain. In that game, my wife’s favorite player, Mitch Moreland, hit is first grand slam (we were also present for his first major league hit and first home run, those events accounting for my wife’s adoption of Moreland as her favorite player). Alas, it turns out that due to the rain out rule, that grand slam never happened.

I’m pretty sure Stan Musial missed out on a Triple Crown because of a rainout erasing a home run.
Also, Lou Gehrig’s streak was kept alive by an ump pre-emptively calling a game.

If I could only get a hold of Tesla’s earthquake generator…
