Rainouts aren't the only weather event that can wreak havoc on the diamond.

A recent softball game between Lynchburg College and Bridgewater College took a turn for the dramatic when something that can best be described as a "dirt tornado" landed on the field and violently pranced around.

It was a beautiful day when -- bam! -- the tornado touched down out of nowhere, like something out of a disaster movie.

Amazingly, the players and umpires hung out on the field, seemingly okay with the fact it looks like the the apocalypse is closer at hand than the bottom of the next inning.

And just as quickly as it came, the tornado went skyward and zipped out of town. The video is quite captivating, although we don't think the music is even necessary to sell it. It's already scary enough without any sound effects lending a hand.
