No the participants in this year’s World Series aren’t homeless. From the Tampa Tribune-
PHILADELPHIA – The Tampa Bay Rays had to scramble for hotel rooms when Game 5 of the World Series was suspended because of bad weather.
The Rays had booked rooms at the Westin Hotel in downtown Philadelphia only through Monday, believing they would be heading back to St. Petersburg on Tuesday.
When Monday night’s game was suspended because of rain, the Rays found that the rooms they had rented at the Westin were already booked.
After some calls, the team found a hotel that had enough rooms for all the players – the posh Hotel du Pont in downtown Wilmington, Del., about 25 miles south of Citizens Bank Park.
