no drones please
August 4, 2020

If you thought the 2020 Major League Baseball season couldn't get any weirder, just check out Tuesday's game between the Minnesota Twins and Pittsburgh Pirates.

MLB fans are probably already used to games getting postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic, but the Pirates-Twins contest was upended briefly, not by the virus, but a drone, which was seen hovering over the fan-less Target Field in Minneapolis in the top of the 5th inning. That prompted the umpires to pull players off the field as a safety precaution.

The players, at least, had some fun with it, and tried to knock the object out of the sky with baseballs, which is very much what one would expect a baseball player to do in this situation. Tim O'Donnell
