An already unpredictable 2020 MLB season just got a little weirder.

Tuesday's game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Minnesota Twins was delayed when a drone flew overhead at Target Field.

save your artsy drone footage of Minneapolis for after the game, please. #MNTwins https://t.co/EAYUjjqv5s

According to The Athletic's Dan Hayes, players in one of the bullpens threw baseballs at the drone but were unable to connect. The device flew out of sight around one of the parking lots outside of the stadium.

Fans are prohibited from attending games for the foreseeable future amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Perhaps somebody wanted to get a bird's-eye view of the action in Minneapolis.
