WASHINGTON – A Washington Nationals workout today saw more than just the usual players, coaches and typical baseball equipment.
The team unveiled flying drones using GoPro cameras as a new training tool, Comcast Sportsnet reports.
New Nats manager Matt Williams hopes the new addition doesn’t get in the way.
“I asked them not to throw any baseballs at [it],” he tells Comcast Sportsnet.
