While their are no rules against the players flying around homemade drones, their is a giant active airstrip that planes fly in and out of across the street from the Indians and Reds spring training complex.
It appears location has really defeated Bauer on this one.
Still, the Indians right-hander was a good sport and offered to have any new rules relating to drones be named after him.
On the bright side for Bauer, his drone was able to capture a sweet picture overlooking the spring training complex before it got grounded for good.
So until Opening Day, the only thing that will be taking flight out of the Goodyear training complex will be balls hit out of the yard.
