Houston Astros World Series DVD may show team's alleged cheating setup



The Houston Astros, embroiled in a cheating scandal, may have shared their own hand in the team's 2017 DVD commemorating their first World Series championship.

The team has already been accused of setting up a camera at centerfield to relay a catcher's signs to a television in the clubhouse and then signal to the batter when at off-pitch pitch was coming. On Sunday, the Twitter user known as Jomboy – who already uncovered the Astros dugout on off-speed pitches – again brought to light the team's alleged cheating setup.

HOUSTON ASTROS SIGN-STEALING CASE UNLIKELY TO HURT BOTTOM LINE

Video from the team's championship DVD allegedly shows where the Astros employees would tip batters. Carlos Correa comes down from the dugout and to his right you can see a trash can, a table, a few chairs and a cable. The setup is still there when Alex Bregman runs through it as well.

Jomboy also points out another moment in the video where a team member appears on a table on the table. HOUSTON ASTROS EXECUTIVE ASKED SCOUTS TO SPY ON OTHER TEAMS, REPORT SAYS

Suspicions were raised last week when former astros pitcher Mike Fiers, as well as other unnamed sources, told The Athletic that the Astros were alerting batters when pitchers were throwing off-speed pitches.

Two sources told The Athletic that the sign-stealing extended into the postseason in 201

7, but another denied it went on that long. Carlos Beltran, the team's former designated hitter-turned-on New York Mets manager, and Alex Cora, the team's former bench coach-turned-Boston Red Sox manager, were both accused of playing a "key role" in the system.

Major League Baseball said it was investigating the allegations. The league had strengthened rules in 2019 in a bid to ensure teams were not stealing signs with the aid of technology.
