The most 2020 moment in baseball history has to be the drone delay in the 5th inning of today’s Cubs-Indians game. All it takes is one nerd taking his gadget for a walk to bring a professional ballgame to a halt. Watch:

Potentially a dangerous situation and not the only time we’ve seen these delays this season. Not exactly certain how baseball can slow these type of incidents, but it seems like drones are the future of this country.
Can already picture some nerd in his parent’s basement taking his drone for a spin to change a World Series game. If Steve Bartman can destroy a game by reaching over a railing (which is arguable that he did), then so can a high-tech drone with infrared cameras.
Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger complained that fans were running on the field to grab him just last year. Picture a fan taking a drone out to Mike Trout. Lawsuits could be in order, but for now, this is all fun.
