Drone Delays Cubs-Indians Game Which Is So 2020

Videos by OutKick

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.

  1. I mean, yeah it’s annoying, but it’s not that…why would you…It’s a remote control toy and we’re running players off like we just received a package from Ted Kaczenski. This is a picture of our nutty and walking contradiction of a country in 2020.
    It only adds to the sad irony to think that in Chicago, a couple miles down the road, American citizens are shooting each other by the dozens each week. But security and law-enforcement are sent to stop a drone from annoying privileged athletes at a baseball game no one is attending? We need to prosecute the pilot of a remote control? At least hold off on the manhunt and prosecutions until after they have focused on and resolved the actual, important, urgent, life and death problems first? Sigh
