Accused of stealing pitching signs from opposing teams
The New York Times reported on Tuesday that Major League Baseball determined that the Boston Red Sox "executed a scheme to illicitly steal hand signals from opponents' catchers". Major League Baseball believes the tactic has been employed against multiple teams.
During games, pitchers and catchers use coded signs to signal the type of pitch they will use. If an opposing team can intercept and decode these signals, they have a higher of chance of hitting the ball. Naturally, this kind of advantage is a very severe form of cheating.
New York Yankees’ general manager Brian Cashman filed the complaint about two weeks ago. He also submitted a video the Yankees shot of the Red Sox dugout during a three-game series against the team last month.
The video showed the Red Sox’s training manager looking at his watch during the game and relaying messages to other players in the dugout. Those players would then signal to teammates on the field about the type of pitch being thrown next. In response to the Yankees’ accusation, the Red Sox have now claimed that the Yankees stole Red Sox signs by using their in-house TV network.
Wearables have steadily become parts of our everyday lives. Fitness trackers and smartwatches hardly merit anyone’s notice in most cases, making them perfect tools for sharing information covertly. Soon enough we’ll see smart devices used to cheat in casinos and other places., if they haven’t already.
