Is there an established local or league-wide rule for what happens if a ball in play strikes and bounces off a drone?

I know there are rules if it hits a bird (ball is in play if it was thrown or batted, not if it was pitched), and if it hits a roof or light (ground rule double). But the fact that a drone is presumably controlled by someone seems like it could cause some major issues there. I suspect they'd rule it like intentional interference, and place the ball and the runners wherever the umpire thinks they would have been had it not hit the drone.

Fun Fenway ground rule related fact: I remember taking the park tour like 20 years ago and learning that if a batted ball gets stuck in the left field ladder, it's a ground rule triple, which was the only ground rule triple in baseball. It had never happened before though (and I'm pretty sure it still hasn't).

I would hope drones would stay out of the area where an otherwise in-play ball could hit them.

Has naked Fenway rooftop dancing been cancelled?
