As if 2020 couldn’t get any weirder … the Minnesota Twins vs. Pittsburgh Pirates game was paused Tuesday afternoon — and it’s all ’cause a drone flew over the field.
The scene was wild … in the middle of the fifth inning, umpires pulled players off the diamond when they noticed a flying object cruising high above Target Field in Minneapolis.
The drone hovered over the ballpark for several minutes — causing a lengthy delay in the game.
Of course, drone flying over ballparks during play is illegal even without fans in attendance — the FAA still prohibits it — and MLB was obviously worried about player safety.
No one was hurt, however … and the unmanned aircraft eventually left the scene and play resumed.
