    MLB Sign Stealing Scandal

    Iíve seen lots of headlines and stories about the fallout - punishments, fines, firings- and possible changes - restrictions on video equipment. But, how was the stealing actually perpetrated? How did they spy, interpret, and then relay the stolen signs to the players to make any difference?
    I learn from the mistakes of people who took my advice.

    I believe houston had a center field camera.

    Signal was relayed to bench and players/coach had different noise to make for each pitch.

    ie. tap a bat on dugout wall--3 times change up--2 times slider--1 time fastball, etc

    And I believe they would change every game so as to not be obvious.

    It's only "science" if it supports the narrative.

    I've seen a couple of different instances, a loud banging from the dugout on certain signs from the catcher, warning the batter what was coming. I've also seen what looked to be a buzzer type device worn under the jersey, that could be buzzed or vibrated upon certain calls.

    Quite the scandal it was, that's why I like watching them :). The guys from MLB Betting Public Consensus should introduce an option that would allow to place bets on these sort of things, just imagine how entertaining that would be, LOL. I think I would be one of the most active participants in these bets. Even without the bets I find these scandals to be very interesting and if I had the possibility of guessing how it would end and also win some money doing so I'd be bankrupt in the matter of days :).Great business idea by me.
