Red Sox caught using Apple Watch to steal signs from Yankees

Red Sox caught using Apple Watch to steal signs from Yankees

Some Red Sox hitters knew what pitch was coming, thanks to an Apple Watch.

Add one more practical use for the Apple Watch: cheating at baseball.

On Tuesday, the New York Times reported that the New York Yankees had filed a complaint with Major League Baseball, claiming the Boston Red Sox were stealing hand signals from opposing catchers and using the smartwatch to relay those tips to batters so they would know what pitch was coming.

The Yankees sent video of the illicit exchanges, and when pressed by league officials, the Red Sox reportedly fessed up to the accusations, admitting that the team’s video-replay personnel were relaying catchers’ signs to a trainer in the dugout wearing an Apple Watch, and the trainer would then signal the batters. The scheme had apparently been going on for several weeks.

The Red Sox in turn accused the Yankees of doing basically the same thing, saying the team used cameras from its YES network to steal opponents’ signs.

While sign-stealing has been around as long as baseball and is technically legal, though frowned upon, the use of electronics to gain an advantage is prohibited. Smartphones, for example, are banned from the dugout, and while tablet computers can be used — Apple has a deal with MLB to supply iPads for analysis and scouting purposes — their internet capabilities must be shut off during games.

Last season, the New York Mets complained about the Los Angeles Dodgers’ use of laser rangefinders to help defensive positioning before games. The league did not discipline the Dodgers because they weren’t used during the games themselves.

It is unclear what penalties the Red Sox may face from the league.

The two teams, historically bitter rivals, are currently contending for the American League’s Eastern Division title, with the Yankees currently 2.5 games behind the division-leading Red Sox. The Yankees are 11-8 against the Red Sox this season, and as one Twitter user pointed out, the Apple Watch cheat didn’t help Boston very much.

I suspect that the three x-men between them couldn't handle even OBI in a match.
That would be interesting - Obi vs. Oranje, LoCo and Duke.

It's a motherfucker they got caught. Shit, the Pats get caught all the time too.

Just imagine the rings these teams would have if they could actually cheat well-
