Traps, Baseball and the Apple Watch: A Case for Jessica Fletcher?

Last week something truly fascinating happened in the American baseball league. Even I, who have no idea of ​​this sport, I have remained ojiplática. Although the goal was to cheat to take advantage of the rivals, not even planning it would have been better for Apple a marketing strategy . Apparently, the Boston Red Sox devised a plan to capture the hand signals that the opposing team was doing (let's make a gesture to decide which move) with the help of an Apple Watch.

Mind you, the level of cheating has been such that Major League Baseball has done the research. It all started when New York Yankees manager Brian Cashman filed a complaint with the league administrators a few weeks ago, which included a video of the August games claiming that a Red Sox member was constantly watching his Apple Watch and later indicated to the equipment .

This complaint reached the arbitral estates, which investigated and concluded that indeed, the Red Sox were cheating. But how?

When both teams met, the Red Sox admitted that the coaches received images of the video reproductions of the rivals live, which then communicated to the rest of the team. Besides, this is not an exceptional practice, but it took weeks with that successful method to anticipate the opposites .

In response, the Red Sox also filed a complaint against the Yankees asserting that other teams used cameras from the team's TV channel to decipher their opponents' signals in real time. Apparently, catching the signs is not something new in baseball . The catchers have always talked to the pitchers using signs and anyone who could see them could alert the other team.

By the way, it is something that is allowed, as long as it is done with the eyes , but the devices are prohibited. Although it is not yet known what action the commission will take, it is clear that the Red Sox will be penalized.
