It’s windy at Dodger Stadium tonight. I’m sure you’ve heard by now. As the Dodgers and Giants got set for game 3 of the National League Division Series, the focus was on the high wind advisory in the ballpark.

Normally we’re used to #shadows being the conversation point in national broadcasts hosted at Dodger Stadium but tonight it will certainly be the wind.
The left field light banks are swaying too — gently — but maybe don’t go out of your way to say hi. https://t.co/7wYAquYR7k

So yes, it’s windy.
There were 14 mile-per-hour winds at first pitch with gusts up to 40 miles-per-hour, whipping the foul poles (fair poles) around down the lines and trash onto the field from the stands.
So uhhh the foul pole is moving. Never seen that before pic.twitter.com/Mz9R6uE6ij

Fans early in the night shared their thoughts and predictions on what the wind could do to sway the outcome of the game…
How will the wind play a role in NLDS game 3 at Dodger Stadium?

…but it was mostly tongue in cheek.
The Dodgers are treating game 3 as a must-win, according to Dave Roberts. If that’s the case — as every game should be — they have the right guy on the mound in Max Scherzer who worked through a scoreless first inning so far.
