Yesterday, we learned that Indians starter Trevor Bauer had built a drone during the off-season and used it to take some pictures from the sky at the team’s spring training facility.
Execs at Major League Baseball aren’t of the drone, apparently. Per Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, they had Bauer’s drone “grounded” as they don’t like him flying it around the stadium. So much for that.
Bauer seems to be taking the news in stride:
Hey @MLB if my drone is really banned, can I at least have that rule named in my honor?
