The leftovers of Hurricane Ida wreaked havoc on the northeast, flooding large parts of the tri-state area.

The torrential rain not only impacted sporting activity on Wednesday night, but its effects will be seen in the days and weeks ahead as venues continue to clean up. The Somerset Patriots, the New York Yankees’ Double-A affiliate, may have been hammered the worst of any local sports franchise.

According to NJ.com, drone footage shows the TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, New Jersey fully submerged by floodwaters. The ballpark’s outfield is not beachfront; what appears to be a body of water in the footage is simply further flooding produced by Hurricane Ida’s remnants. The TD Bank Ballpark is approximately half a mile from the Raritan River.

The Patriots will be on the road for the remainder of the week and will not return to Somerset until Sept. 7. Team president Patrick McVerry issued a statement Thursday morning regarding Ida’s damage but did not provide an estimated date for reopening the stadium.

“The ballpark flooded like much of the surrounding area,” the statement read.

“We are in the process of evaluating to what extent and the damage caused. In the meantime, we are thinking about all our neighbors dealing with flooding of their homes and businesses and hope everybody is safe.”
