Drone flying over the field causes delay in Twins game

Only in 2020.

The Minnesota Twins game on Tuesday was delayed due to a drone flying over the field. 

According to the announcers, who said this was a first, the umpires pulled the teams off the field because the drone presented a player safety issue. 

The delay, which lasted about 10 minutes, happened in the top of the 5th inning when the Twins were leading the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1. 

Only in 2020.
