Astros Cheating

The Houston Astros sign stealing scandal had its origins in 2017 and was exposed publicly in 2019. Members of the Houston Astros organization illegally stole signs of opposing teams using technology during the 2017 and 2018 seasons. The story was originally reported by journalists Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich for The Athletic in November 2019. Mike Fiers, a pitcher who played for the Astros in 2017, told The Athletic that the Astros used a video camera in center field to steal opposing teams' signs. MLB opened an investigation into the allegations and in January 2020 confirmed that the Astros illegally used a camera system to steal signs during the 2017 regular season and postseason, during which they won the World Series, as well as in part of the 2018 season. MLB found no evidence of illicit sign stealing in the 2019 season, in which the Astros advanced to and lost in the World Series.
