I left a baseball game after 3 innings

The Newark Bears play in the Atlantic League which is not affiliated with Major League Baseball. NJIT students, faculty, and staff get free tickets since our baseball team plays at their stadium within walking distance of the school. Today, I joined NJIT colleagues Galen and Aron to go to a game that started at 11 AM to accommodate day camps. After 3 innings, the Bears lead the Bridgeport Bluefish 2-1 when a heavy rain shower came. None of the seats were covered so we had to stand in the back with hundreds of kids. We decided to leave at that point.

I found out by reading the team's web site that the game resumed after a 2 hr and 18 minute rain delay. The Bears won 4-1. The stadium must have been almost completely empty when the game resumed since the day campers would have to leave by 2 PM.

This was the earliest I ever left a baseball game. I didn't have to pay for the tickets anyway, so I didn't lose anything.
