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

With respect to both incidents regarding a Houston Astros employee, security identified an issue, addressed it and turned the matter over to the Department of Investigations.

The Houston Astros seem to be in trouble with Major League Baseball after a man, claiming to be a team employee, was removed from a media-credentialed area next to the Boston Red Sox dugout in Game 1 of the ALCS, according to Metro. Per the report, the man had a small camera and was texting frequently. The man was removed from the area "several times" by security personnel, a source told The Associated Press. A few days later, the same man was ejected from an area in Fenway Park during Game 1 of the ALCS.

According to the Metro report, which cited multiple security sources who were on the scene, the man in question was removed during the third inning of Game 1 on Saturday night at Fenway Park - but allowed to stay in the ballpark after another Astros staffer intervened.

Major League Baseball concluded the Houston Astros were not trying to steal signs when they had an employee monitor opposing dugouts during the post-season.

But in a statement, it says they "consider the matter closed".

The new leader for sports betting news, advice, and sportsbook reviews in the United States is at MetroBet. The incident and the investigation were first reported Tuesday during ALCS Game 3 by Metro Boston.

The statement says their thorough investigation showed the person who was watching the Indians' dugout was just making sure Cleveland was not cheating.

"I do not think that person in the camera well was stealing signs, and so I understand that it was resolved", Dombrowski said.

The first employee, who had been issued a credential before the October 8 game in Cleveland, was removed from an area Saturday near Boston's dugout for taking photos during Game 1 of the ALCS.

"I'm always concerned about [sign-stealing] throughout the season", Cora said after the game. The Yankees, too, were also fined for violating a rule pertaining to the use of the dugout phone, and there have been similar reports that other teams believe the Yankees use the YES Network to steal signs from opponents. "If we feel there's something going on we switch the signs". And we don't get caught up on the whole paranoia thing of the signs.

"No, I don't", he said.

According to Yahoo Sports, the Athletics also were suspicious of the Astros in August.
