Astros Suspected of Cheating In ALCS, ALDS

Astros Suspected of Cheating In ALCS, ALDS

The Houston Astros on Wednesday acknowledged a longstanding practice of having a team employee surveil the opposing team's dugout during road games, but said the goal was merely to ensure that they. The Astros only victory of the series, thus far, was Game 1.

The Indians were concerned the man was attempting to view scouting reports Cleveland had on Houston's players, one person said.

"After the man was removed another Astros staffer intervened - according to sources who were on the scene - and tried to convince security that he was authorized to be in the area next to the dugout". The man was not allowed back into the credentialed area, but was allowed to remain in the ballpark.

HOUSTON-The time-honored practice of Major League Baseball teams trying to decode opponents' signs is seldom detectable to the naked eye, and it is rarely openly discussed.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora is slated to speak to the media at 6 p.m. ET at Minute Maid Park.

"We don't get caught up on the whole paranoia thing of the signs", said Cora, who was Houston's bench coach last season when the Astros won their first World Series title. "So I mean we do a good job changing sequences".

But the Astros may be the first team to ever get away with the "we were spying to make sure they weren't spying" excuse. "We try to slow it down and if we feel there's something going on, we try to switch the signs".

"I'm aware of something going on, but I haven't been briefed", Astros manager A.J. Hinch said after Tuesday's Game 3 loss to the Sox. To address those worries, the commissioner instituted a new prohibition on the use of certain in-stadium cameras, beefing up Major League Baseball security at games and monitoring video rooms.

Something sketchy went down at Fenway during Game 1 of the ALCS.

"No, I don't", he said.

Security at Fenway Park had been warned about the man, because of his similarly suspicious behavior during the Astros' ALDS win over the Cleveland Indians.

According to the New York Post, the Astros had an employee monitoring the Red Sox's dugout in Game 1 to see if they were illegally using a video monitor.

He stood out because he was wearing a suit jacket in a restricted area reserved for photographers, a member of the team's social media department and where TV reporters are permitted to stand, one of the sources said. But this American League Championship Series is laying bare just how concerned teams are about the growing use of banned technology to aid in such efforts.
