I'm watching the live ESPN2 coverage and the players are wearing long sleeves. The umpire and line judges are in jackets and long pants. Everyone in the crowd is bundled up in jackets and blankets. And the poor ball kids are wearing shorts and polo shirts!
The commentators keep talking about how cold it is (currently 51 degrees F) with wind and dampness making it feel even colder. Doesn't a grand slam event provide appropriate clothing for the ballkids? Or can't they at least let them wear their own gear? After today's exposure, they will all be sick next week and the tourney will need to recruit all new ballkids.
