Indians pitcher flies drone over spring training, MLB promptly bans it

Friday February 20th, 2015

Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer built a drone over the offseason and brought it to Cleveland's spring training complex in Goodyear, Arizona. 

He wanted to put his creation to good use, so he flew it over the complex to get some sweet aerial shots, then shared them on Twitter.

The fun didn't last long.

While it must have been disappointing to have the drone banned right as spring training is getting started, Bauer took things in stride.

Seems like a fair request. Your move, MLB.
