In a ruling which has to be the first of its kind for a player in the major leagues, Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer has been banned from photographing his teammates at spring training by Major League Baseball.
At least with the drone he built himself, according to MLB.com.
Bauer had been tweeting some interesting, if not extraordinary, aerial photos of the club's Arizona spring training facility, but that bird's eye view will come to an end.

And if Bauer can't make a name for himself in the drone photography game, he at least wants some credit for the new grounding rule.
Hey @MLB if my drone is really banned, can I at least have that rule named in my honor?But not before taking one last shot ... at MLB.
