Comedy of errors force Yankees to sleep at airport
After a series of problems, the New York Yankees slept inside an airport.
The New York Yankees had a rough night.
After their game against the Washington Nationals was postponed on Wednesday, they had to catch a flight to Kansas City for a three-game series with the Royals.
The problem was there was a delay due to weather, a mechanical issue with the plane and a situation with flight regulations which forced New York's flight to be cancelled.
By the time all of that happened, every hotel was booked for the night in D.C. So the Yankees did what they had to do – they slept inside the airport.
They did not sleep at the airport hotel. They pitched their tent in the actual airport.
"It was an unfortunate set of circumstances," general manager Brian Cashman said on Wednesday, via Newsday.
New York ultimately caught a flight out of Dulles International Airport the next morning, with their series against the Royals starting on Friday.
