The Astros players would decipher the signs and then relay to the batter which pitch was likely coming next by literally banging trash cans or hitting the ceiling of the dugout to signal if it was an off-speed pitch or a fastball. If a team figures out another team's signs through old-fashioned methods, that's OK by the league.
The question now for the Astros is whether this 2017 sign-stealing scheme will earn significant punishment since it came before the new rules were implemented.
A feed from a camera in center field, fixed on the opposing catcher's signs, was hooked up to a television monitor that was placed on a wall steps from the team's home dugout at Minute Maid Park, in the tunnel that runs between the dugout and the clubhouse.
The website said the process was started by a struggling hitter and a coach, neither of whom was identified.
Two people familiar with the situation said the Astros attempted to get a second person next to Cleveland's dugout during Game 3 of the AL Division Series after another man was removed earlier by security for taking pictures with his cellphone, the Associated Press reported a year ago. The two teams were so evenly matched that they went seven games and you know the rest. "It's easy to blame someone when they win". "That is the only technology that I use and understand", he said. In the 2019 ALCS, the Yankees accused the Astros of stealing signs. Now, an Major League Baseball investigation into the Astros' culture in the wake of the team's firing of assistant general manager Brandon Taubman could be expanded to determine who in the organization was aware of the sign-stealing practice - and whether it continued or evolved in subsequent seasons.
Well, fast-forward to the 2019 playoffs. In 2017, the Boston Red Sox were fined after the league discovered they were "sending electronic communications from their video replay to an athletic trainer in the dugout". But after the report went online, the team provided a statement to Rosenthal.
Pitchers don't use multiple signs with no one on base. I call that using small details to take advantage. Hinch gave this statement with a smug smirk that seems characteristic of the way the organization reportedly operates. As mentioned previously, there is really no way you should discredit the Astros because of how historically good they were.
Obviously, the league shouldn't need to prove that the Astros are cheating. We want to follow the rules and we want to compete and win.
I can't say for certain that everyone is involved in the actual stealing of the signs. But clearly, there were guys that benefitted as well.
