Bad operator crashes drone at Petco Park during Padres-Diamondbacks

Just a month ago, the San Diego Padres helped push and pass a new set of drone flying regulations to improve safety.

On Sunday in the midst of the Diamondbacks’ visit to play the Padres at Petco Park, we learned why.

A drone was seen flying near the upper deck of the stadium before it crashed much too close to a couple of unaware bystanders.

FOX Sports Arizona later caught a fan dancing with the busted drone, and it’s a good bet the owner of the device won’t be getting it back.

Considering the safety issues, can’t say we feel sorry for their loss.

And with this story involving drones and baseball, the inevitable joke came up.

Last postseason, Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer suffered a gruesome finger injury while tinkering with his own drone.
