What do the Minnesota Twins, LeBron James and Metropolitan Transportation Authority all have in common? They want nothing to do with hoverboards

What do the Minnesota Twins, LeBron James and Metropolitan Transportation Authority all have in common? They want nothing to do with hoverboards.

On Monday, Twins manager Paul Molitor told reporters that the team had banned hoverboards from their clubhouse, citing safety reasons.

“They just seemed a little too dangerous,” Molitor said. “The guys had fun with them, but you’ve got to be aware that someone could get hurt.”

Molitor’s got a point, not only can you fall off your hoverboard like free-agent infielder Dan Uggla did, they’ve also been known to randomly burst into flames. 

No word yet on whether or not the Blue Jays, who have an affection for the transportation devices, will follow suit.
