Umbrellas in the Outfield

Why is it that in baseball there are rain delays and postponements, but not in football?  Doesn’t make any sense to me.  Don’t say lighting has anything to do with it.   Are football players less at risk for lightening strikes?  And look at the San Diego Chargers – they say bring on the lightening bolts.

If baseball players with their guaranteed contracts are worried about getting wet,  MLB should outfit them with ponchos.  The guys could also wear those plastic slip on shoe covers over their cleats. Oh, and some umbrellas for the outfielders.
