HONOLULU (KHON2) — It’s the cheating scandal that has rocked Major League Baseball.
The league issued a report on Monday on an investigation saying that the Houston Astros used technology to cheat and steal signs during their 2017 world series winning season.
As a result, Houston manager, Aj Hinch and their general manger were both fired within hours after the report and suspended by the league for one year.
Boston Red Sox manager, Alex Cora – who was indicted in the report – was also fired the very next day.
Calros Beltran – who was just hired a few months ago to be the New York Mets manager and also indicted in the report – lost his job Thursday, January 16th.
Basically, The Astros used cameras in center-field and apple watches to steal signs from the catcher and that information was relayed to their players – to tip them off on what pitch was coming.
Cora and Beltran are still awaiting discipline from the league.
