WATCH: Justin Verlander endures rain delay in unique fashion

Wednesday’s series finale between the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox didn’t start at the original slotted time. The game was delayed due to lightning occurring in the area. All players have their own ways of passing the time when a delay happens in MLB.

I think you’d be hard pressed to find a big league baseball player, or any level of baseball player for that matter who enjoys sitting around, waiting for a baseball game to begin play. It could become very irritating the more time that passes by.

Our very own Justin Verlander took to his Instagram account to show how he was passing the time in the ‘Windy City’.

LOL… We see you JV!

After about 40 minutes from the original time the game was supposed to start and we finally had baseball in Chi-Town. If the time was extended out any longer than that, who knows what else JV would’ve done to pass the time.

Born & raised in the mitten. Grew up in Traverse City, but moved down to the Redford, MI area after my Dad tragically passed away in 1999 because that's where he was being buried and we wanted to be down there with him. I'm an avid Detroit sports fan, growing up in the state of Michigan and having such a solid block of teams to root for is something special. Iv'e always liked discussing Detroit sports whether it be about the past, the present or even what the future holds for Michigan sports teams. It's a long time coming as I am very excited to be apart of the DSN team and be able to construct interesting features to be posted for Detroit Sports fans to read/discuss about.
