Poor Laura Rutledge. Here she is trying to do her job and report on Arkansas State’s love of trick plays, and next thing you know the damn band is out on the field. Pro’s pro that she is, Rutledge didn’t break her train of thought or even miss a beat.
“My husband [Josh Rutledge, a Colorado Rockies infielder] texted me after and said he could see the fear in my eyes,” Rutledge said. “In the future I will always ask about the path of the band for those game opens. Normally you just worry about the team run out but as we have all seen, the band can be just as dangerous!”
