    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?
    Donít make jokes about China. It will go viral.

    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.

    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.
