Burning Baseball Fields

Although the practice is not advised, apparently it's fairly common for people to try to quickly dry out wet baseball fields by dousing them in gasoline and burning them.

One such case was recently in the news: "Baseball field closed due to 'poor decision' to douse it in gas, set it on fire"

But youtube offers up many more examples.

"...look at that player go! He is burning up the field as he rounds third base and heads for home!"

Horrible journalism! Just reporting the sensational flames and not bothering to find out if the field was dry enough to play on afterwards.
