Major League Baseball: Boston Red Sox Accused of Using Apple Watch to Steal Opponents’ Hand Signals
The Boston Red Sox Baseball team has been accused of using an Apple Watch to steal hand signals of opponent catchers during the games. A member of the Red Sox's training staff has been caught by the investigators while relaying info to his players after communicating with the video replay personnel, reports The New York Times.
The Yankee's team has allegedly shot a video showcasing the Red Sox staff member looking at his Apple Watch in the dugout, during a recent three-game series between the two teams.
The Yankee's general manager Brian Cashman had later filed a detailed complaint with the commissioner's office, which also included the recorded video footage showing the illicit practise of relaying hand signals of opponent team members to Red Sox players.
Spying on opponent teams and their strategic moves has been a quintessential part of the Baseball game for a long time. However, the use of electronic gadgets to give an unfair advantage to your team is quite unethical and objectionable in the spirit of the game.
After being confronted at the commissioner's office, the Red Sox team admitted to have been involved in the illicit act of stealing opposition team's strategic moves. However, they have countered the allegation saying that the Yankees used hidden cameras to steal their hand signals during live games.
The City Commissioner Rob Manfred is yet to take a decision on issuing penalties against the Red Sox or call for a thorough investigation into the matter from both the angles.
