Here's Video Proof The Houston Astros Were Stealing Signs In 2017
© Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
A report from Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich of The Athletic has emerged alleging the Houston Astros stole signs using a camera throughout the 2017 season. Former Astros pitcher Mike Fiers then confirmed that the team used a camera in the outfield to steal signs...
quote:

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. Team employees and players would watch the screen during the game and try to decode signs — sitting opposite the screen on massage tables in a wide hallway.
Also from the report, former Chicago White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar remembered an incident from two September appearances against the Astros at Minute Maid Park...
quote:

“There was a banging from the dugout, almost like a bat hitting the bat rack every time a changeup signal got put down,” said Farquhar, who is now the pitching coach with the White Sox’s High-A affiliate in Winston-Salem, N.C. “After the third one, I stepped off. I was throwing some really good changeups and they were getting fouled off. After the third bang, I stepped off.”
Popular baseball Twitter personality Jomboy found the footage of that game and broke it down...

I go to games all the time and make videos and bang when people bat. Probably was me, so what does it matter. If the person that came up with this idea and u want me to come bang at your house. Just let me know. Any hot women there?

So is Fiers going to give up his WS ring since he doesn't approve?

If you ain't cheating you ain't trying.

“Video proof” would be actual video of an outfield camera filming the catcher’s signs. Random noises in a stadium with 20,000 fans in attendance isn’t proof.

If Fiers doesn’t think that’s playing the game the right way why didn’t he say anything 2 years ago?
