Paul Molitor bans hoverboards from Twins clubhouse


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.
