MLB Issues New Rules To Punish Electronic Sign-Stealing 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jul 31, 2020 12:54 pm

Major League Baseball and the MLB Players\' Association have agreed to a new set of rules that will punish players and team personnel who steal signs electronically.

According to a document obtained by ESPN, the rules state that any individual who utilizes electronic devices or visual-enhancement devices during the game to identify, communicate or relay the opposing team\'s signs or pitch information will be subject to discipline.

No Houston Astros players were disciplined after an MLB investigation in January revealed an elaborate, electronic, sign-stealing scheme used by the team in 2017.
