The country experienced some very weird weather over the weekend, especially Colorado.

A group of storm chasers spotted the “Wizard of Oz” IRL Saturday in Eads, and they captured the unusual sight in the video above.

Rain-nado or Torn-bow? You decide.

A photo was also posted to Facebook and Twitter, with some commenters wondering if it was Photoshopped.

Although the video footage proves otherwise.

“Somewhere over the rainbow in Colorado today, there was another rainbow, with a tornado above it!” the Basehunters wrote on Facebook. “An incredible sight to witness in person!”

Sure it’s cool to see, but it’s probably not a great idea to try to find the pot of gold in this case.

Meanwhile in Denver, late season snow on Sunday made for some unpleasant conditions to play baseball, but they did anyway.

The Colorado Rockies tweeted pictures of Coors Field blanketed in snow Sunday ahead of theirafternoon game against the LA Dodgers.

Go home Mother Nature, you’re drunk.

Kids, baseball bats and video cameras are never a good mix for anyone involved, and this new video is no exception.

In the clip, aptly titled “Sorry Dad,” a father is pitching the ball to his son on their front lawn.

He’s also trying to film the whole thing at the same time, which turned out to be a very poor decision.

Bad for him, entertaining for us.

Honestly, what did he expect would happen here?

A woman named Gale brought her collection of old baseball cards to PBS' "Antiques Roadshow" and walked away feeling like a million bucks – because that's how much they turned out to be worth.

It is "the biggest sports memorabilia valuation" in the show's history.

"For me, it's as good as it gets," said
The cards were from the 1871-72 Boston Red Stockings team which included players like George Wright, Harry Wright and Albert Spalding.

Her great, great grandmother ran a boarding house in Boston where the players stayed, and they also wrote handwritten notes to her which are included in the woman's collection.

"I really couldn't believe that it could be worth that much,"
Gale said afterwards in shock.

She also says she would like to keep them in family rather than sell them.

A fitting end to the illustrious career of a baseball icon. Even as a die-hard Red Sox fan, you may hate Jeter's guts. But dammit, you've still got to respect him.

A fan caught on camera sleeping during a New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox game in April has filed a defamation lawsuit against Major League Baseball, the Yankees, ESPN and the game's two announcers (John Kruk and Dan Shulman),according to The Courthouse News Service.

Andrew Robert Rector, in a lawsuit filed in Bronx Supreme Court, lays out why he felt he was defamed after images of him nodding off at Yankee Stadium on April 13 were broadcast.

"In the course of watching the game plaintiff napped and this opened unending verbal crusade against the napping plaintiff," the complaint stated.

Is it just me or is the first pitch of baseball games way more entertaining than the actual game?
