Last season numerous Twins players took to riding hoverboards around the clubhouse, but that won’t be happening again.
Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that second-year manager Paul Molitor has banned the two-wheel scooters because “they just seemed a little too dangerous.”
Here’s more from the 59-year-old Hall of Famer:
The guys had fun with them, but you’ve got to be aware that someone could get hurt. Thankfully nothing happened. Got a little carried away. Riding them down to the batting cages and the tunnels. I just didn’t like the direction it was taking last year.
Last year around this time Molitor banned smartphone usage right before games, although generally speaking he’s far from a “get off my lawn” type of manager.
