    CHICAGO (AP) — Umpires hastily cleared the field during a game between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night when a small drone flew into Wrigley Field over the bleachers and landed on the grass in deep left center. As Willson Contreras came to bat with two outs in the bottom of the fifth and the game tied at 2, the device was spotted over the left-center stands. Before the drone landed, umpires rushed players into the dugouts. The blinking drone took off, hovered at about 100 feet, then pulled away and vanished past the vintage center-field scoreboard. Following a 7-minute delay, Contreras resumed his at-bat and grounded out to end the inning. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB...

    BOSTON (AP) — The Rays-Red Sox game at Fenway Park on Thursday was delayed for about four minutes in the top of the third inning by a drone flying outside the park beyond the right-field bleachers. With Tampa Bay’s Yoshi Tsutsugo at the plate, players on the field and the umpires pointed to where it was. The Rays had two runners on base that left the field and Boston’s fielders headed to their dugout area, too. The umpires also left the field, waiting on the track near Boston’s dugout. The drone then flew in the distance out beyond center field before leaving the area. There was also a drone delay at Minnesota’s Target Field this month. Copyright © 2020 The Associated...

The Minnesota Twins are handling the Pittsburgh Pirates in what’s become a theme for Bucs’ manager Derek Shelton in his first season in charge, but the main story from Tuesday’s drubbing is not the scoreline (though the Pittsburgh sports radio airwaves beg to differ), it’s a strange object floating in the sky that forced a delay. Yes, it wouldn’t be 2020 without a drone delay in an MLB game, but unlike everything else to occur this year, nothing bad happened this time. Thankfully, the object was removed and the game continued, as scheduled,...
