CLEMSON, SC (WIS) - Normally, rain delays during baseball games involve a lot of sitting around waiting for the weather to clear. At Tuesday night's game between Clemson and Davidson, however, the teams worked together to entertain the crowd during the break.

A video of the teams' antics posted on YouTube shows Clemson players acting like bowling pins while another player somersaulted toward them, knocking down most of the players. The "bowler" left a 7-10 split, however, and earned a spare on the second try.

Next, two Davidson players pretended to go hunting while other players used his hands for a pair of deer antlers. The hunting expedition was followed by a mock Revolutionary War battle, in which both teams lined up and pretended to shoot each other.

The teams' fun also included pantomiming a horse race, a football game, curling and boxing matches, and even a doubles tennis match with players acting as the net.

Clemson players also held a breakdancing competition, and a Davidson player even used a teammate as a weightlifting barbell. In the final routine, several Clemson players acted as a tanning bed in which a player lied down, and changed his shirt from white to orange while the "cover" was closed.

Once regulation baseball resumed, Clemson won the game 19-0.
