ARLINGTON - Texas Rangers' minor league players catcher Zach Zaneski and third baseman Mike Olt were in the dugout at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington when a tornado blew into town.

Zaneski shot video of the whipping winds and tarps flying loose on his cell phone before heading inside to safety.

Later Tuesday, Rangers catcher Mike Napoli sent out Zaneski's video on Twitter, because the minor leaguer doesn't have an account of his own.

The ballpark suffered no damage in the storms, and the Rangers were set to play an exhibition game there at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday.

News 8's George Riba shares the video and Zaneski and Olt's reactions in this report.
