Pirates-Twins recreation delayed by … a drone?

If the Pirates or Twins are on the lookout for a brand new outfielder, they may have one.

Tuesday afternoon’s Pirates vs. Twins matchup in Minnesota was delayed, not due to inclement whether or not, or bees, or a cat, squirrel or any form of stay animal, however due to a drone hovering above the Goal Subject outfield.

FAGAN: MLB should go all in with weird rules for 2020

To attempt to knock the four-prop drone on its digital rear, gamers in each bullpens had been trying to hit the gadget with baseballs. 

Baseball is bizarre sufficient in 2020 with no followers, effectively, pretend followers within the stands, gamers sitting within the entrance row with support signs, accidents aplenty and, oh, slightly pandemic occurring. It is nice. It is all nice. If the coronavirus will not derail the MLB season, then slightly drone will not both.

A drone made its look at Fenway Park in a 2019 recreation between the Crimson Sox and Blue Jays, however between innings. No hurt, no foul. 

The recognized flying object disappeared into the underbelly of Goal Subject, and the gamers took the sector. Play ball.

One thing tells me the nerds at Statcast are behind this. (Effectively, possibly not.)

Trevor Bauer and Matt Hardy’s whereabouts are unknown at press time.
