Drone Target Field

Drone spotted above Target Field causes delay in game

Nothing that happens the rest of 2020 can be too surprising, but how about this for bizzarre.

Tuesdays afternoon’s game at Target Field between the Minnesota Twins and Pittsburgh Pirates was delayed because a drone was spotted hovering over the field during the fifth inning.

Umpires had to pull the teams off the field concerned for their safety.

Some of the players attempted to knock down the drone by pitching baseballs at it, without any luck.

Flying drones over restricted areas is illegal, even without fans in attendance.

Drone delays now appear to be a thing.
