Top gun: Bauer’s drone grounded at Indians’ spring training

Trevor Bauer’s "Top Gun" days are done, at least for the time being.

On Friday, Major League Baseball stopped the pitcher from flying his drone at the Indians’ spring training facility in Goodyear, Ariz. 

It all started when Bauer posted some pictures from a drone he built himself on Twitter.

Pretty cool, right? MLB didn’t think so.

According to, the Indians received a note from MLB suggesting Bauer should put his drone flying on hold after the pictures were posted.

"We actually got a note telling him to cool it," Indians manager Terry Francona told "That actually makes sense. That’s all we need. If we get the MLB on us, we don’t need the FAA. We’ll be in all kinds of trouble."

Though Francona did warn Bauer that he’d be in trouble if it hit the team’s ace.

"I saw the drone the other day," Francona continued. "I told him if that drone hits (Corey) Kluber, he’s released."

Luckily for Bauer, the drone didn’t crash into Kluber and Bauer is still an Indian. Though that didn’t stop him from taking to Twitter following the grounding of his quadcopter and posting some great memes.

No word yet on if MLB has officially named a new rule after Bauer’s drone, but guess spring training is a no fly zone!

For drones at least.

No word on whether or not Bauer attempted a little Obi-Wan Kenobi magic: "These aren’t the drone(s) you’re looking for (hand wave)."
