According to Cleveland.com, 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 Cleveland.com. "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.
Hey @MLB if my drone is really banned, can I at least have that rule named in my honor?
