Looks like the Yankees also "cheated" by stealing signs

The endless back-and-forth between the Yankees and Red Sox seems guaranteed to continue until the sun burns out or both Boston and NY are wiped out by extreme weather events, with a baseball source claiming the Sox have given Major League Baseball proof that the Yankees were also stealing signs.

Said Manfred: "I do believe that this is a charged situation from a competitive perspective, when you have the kind of rivalry that the Yankees and the Red Sox have". He included a video from a three-game series between the two teams in Boston last month.

The New York Times reported on Tuesday that the Yankees had filed a complaint with the commissioner's office that they had proof the Red Sox were using an Apple Watch to relay signals to players. The newspaper said one clip showed Pedroia passing along the intelligence to Boston outfielder Chris Young, who formerly played for the Yankees. The Times reported that in the first game, after Boston first put a runner on second, Rafael Devers hit a home run.

Sources also indicated on Wednesday afternoon that as this issue began to fester in recent weeks, the hope of the commissioner's office was that the rivals would keep their sign-stealing allegations under wraps and out of public consumption.

DiSarcina, according to ESPN, was gesturing signs to a pitcher and then the Yankees players were using that information.

Mets fans, for their part, have mostly decamped for football season, where they plan on following another uh.successful.Jets season. However, the use of technology in order to see and relay the signals is prohibited.

Knowing the opposing team's catcher signs can help a batter know what pitch to expect.

Electronics and video have become more a part of baseball and all sports in recent years. The league inked a deal with Apple previous year to let teams use iPads in the dugout, though the devices do not have internet connectivity.
