Astros may have been cheating in Game 1 against Red Sox

Man with Astros media credential ejected from Indians camera bay in ALDS Game 3

There was no indication of any suspicious activity during Game 3 in Houston on Tuesday night, but the Red Sox were careful to change their pitch-calling signs throughout the night - something Manager Alex Cora said is fairly standard for the Red Sox.

"MLB prefer we don't look into it ourselves", Luhnow said. Back in 2015, the Royals believed the Blue Jays were stealing signs during the 2015 ALCS (to say nothing of the infamous "man in white" conspiracy in Toronto a few years prior).

The Red Sox were caught stealing signs last season using a Fitbit product to communicate between a member of the organization in video replay room to the athletic trainer in the dugout. To address those worries, the commissioner instituted a new prohibition on the use of certain in-stadium cameras, beefing up Major League Baseball security at games and monitoring video rooms.

Earlier this week, multiple reports alleged the Houston Astros used a team employee to record and monitor the opposing team's dugout during both the ALDS and ALCS.

'I'm aware of something going on, but I haven't been briefed, ' Astros manager A.J. Hinch said after his team lost 8-2 in Houston in Game 3 on Tuesday. But this American League Championship Series is laying bare just how concerned teams are about the growing use of banned technology to aid in such efforts.

"Somebody mentioned (it) to me right now".

According to Yahoo Sports, the Athletics also were suspicious of the Astros in August. All Clubs remaining in the playoffs have been notified to refrain from these types of efforts and to direct complaints about any in-stadium rules violations to Major League Baseball staff for investigation and resolution.

The Cleveland Indians filed a complaint following Game 3 of the AL Division Series after the employee was observed aiming his cellphone into their dugout and taking pictures or video.

The Red Sox had been warned before their series-opening game, the AP was told.

During the Astros' series-clinching win on October 8 at Progressive Field in Cleveland, a man with a cellphone standing by the photographer's pit was removed "several times" by security personnel, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday night.

The Red Sox Game 3 win in Houston lasted almost four hours, which is long for a baseball game, although postseason contests are often so lengthy. The series is now being played with a cloud of suspicion.
