This may be the first injury related to drones in Major League Baseball in history but one of the flying machines has had an impact on an MLB ALCS playoff game. None was hurt in the stadium but Trevor Bauer, who is a pitcher for Cleveland cut his throwing hand on Friday and had to get stitches ahead of a scheduled start in game two of the team’s series against Toronto. He was thought to have recovered for tonight’s game and started playing but halfway through the game his stitches opened up and he had to leave the game.
Passion for drones
Trevor Bauer is passionate about drones and the drone that injured him was a model that he himself developed. When he started the drone it malfunctioned and only one of the rotor started causing the injury. It’s reported by USA Today that he had trouble with UAV’s before, he was even barred from flying drones in the practice facility of the team and once he got a drone stuck at a tree in Kansas city. He has his own YouTube channel where he showcases his drone flying capabilities. There are nicely shot drone videos and just last month there was new coverage that he attended as a guest at a local high school to talk about his passion for drones.
All the Cleveland fans and Bauer fans wish him a speedy recovery.
