VIDEO: Bird's Nest Causes MAJOR Power Outage At Trop, Rays/Angels Go Dark

WATCH: For the SECOND time in two months, Tropicana Field in St. Pete lost power during a baseball game. This time it was the Rays and Angels who saw the lights go out. The cause? A bird's nest!

VIA Tampa Bay Times: A fallen bird’s nest caused Thursday night’s power outage that delayed the Rays’ game against the Los Angeles Angels for 36 minutes and left 15,291 at Tropicana Field in the dark.

A nest inside the 16th Street substation three blocks away from Tropicana Field fell, and “the bird’s nest coming in contact with our equipment likely causing sparks or a flare” that left 12,900 customers without power for three minutes, according to Duke Energy Florida spokesperson Ana Gibbs.

Inside Tropicana Field, the dome went completely dark, losing all power within the seating bowl, from the banks of LED lights that brighten the field to the stadium video boards.

Here's a bunch of videos of the Trop going dark...
