GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Fans were sent hurrying from their seats at Goodyear Ballpark by what turned out to be a false alarm with one out in the top of the eighth inning of a spring training game between the Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Indians.
The game Wednesday was delayed 5 minutes.
An automatic alarm beeped loudly throughout the ballpark in the top of the eighth Wednesday. The Indians stopped warmups and the umpires looked at one another, wondering what to do.
The alarm persisted and dozens of fans began to evacuate. Cleveland pitcher Nick Hagadone, however, continued his warmups.
After the delay, Seattle batter Julio Morban stepped into the batter's box and play resumed.
The scoreboard showed a message that read, ``False Alarm.''
