Diamondbacks' bus has flat tire
SYDNEY -- Some Arizona Diamondbacks players had to walk the last half mile to Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday when one of the team buses had a flat tire ahead of their Major League Baseball season opener with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
A Diamondbacks spokesman said "a handful" of players and some staff decided to walk the rest of the way to the stadium instead of waiting for a replacement bus to arrive.
He said most of the players had already arrived on another bus about five hours ahead of the scheduled start of the game.
