Snowflake effect started 23 years ago

Topps Holiday set features snowflakes imposed on pictures of baseball players.  Normally, they wouldn't play baseball in the snow, but it may have actually happened before.  Circa 1994, and then in 2003....

You may have to click on the pictures to see it better...

There were just a few flurries to start.  The stars were the first to notice.  Neon Deion, Hawk, Rickey, Rock...
  


Seemed like it was only coming down in certain spots.  Like right over the pitcher's mound....


But it started coming down in other areas....in the field and the on deck circle....
  

in the outfield....getting slippery on the basepaths....
    

Started getting heavier..

 Jose Rijo had seen this before...

Hard to pitch with it blowing around, or sticking to your face....

Buehrle says, it's getting hazardous out here.  LaRussa thinks we might have to call the game....
 

No Jose, it's called a snow bunny.  Not a snow bunty.....

Papi says, put away your snow shovels, We gonna keep playin'!

Everyone got home safely, though.  They used the leftover sticky UV coating on the parking lot.
