Somebody left a camera on the field during the Pirates game and nobody knew what to do

Already this season, we've seen teams deal with cats, squirrels and even snakes on the field. For the most part, they were able to handle the situation and move on with the game. 
But on Wednesday, during the Nats-Pirates game at PNC Park, a new and different foe had planted itself behind home plate -- threatening to stay forever if nobody interfered. It was ... A CAMERA. Gerrit Cole and Francisco Cervelli could only point and stare in disbelief. 

Thankfully, a cameraperson pulled the alien-like piece of equipment off the field of play and baseball could continue being played in front of some other cameras.
