Clogged toilet in Oakland spills into Yankees' dugout

Maintenance workers spent nearly an hour before Saturday's game in Oakland fixing plumbing issues in the visitor's dugout being occupied by the New York Yankees.

Officials at the Oakland Coliseum told The Associated Press that a backed up toilet caused the spillage into the Yankees' dugout, prompting manager Joe Girardi and some of his players to walk around the mess as they prepared for their matinee against the Athletics.

The scene was reminiscent of previous plumbing problems that caused flooding at the aging Coliseum, including one instance in 2013 where raw sewage spilled into the Athletics' dugout. One year later, the Athletics' coaching room became flooded because of a clogged toilet.
