It's a scandal the baseball world hasn't seen for a long time. The 2017 American champion will be severely punished for this. What did the Houston Astros do? And how could that happen?

DThe system was technically sophisticated and not easy to discover. He had a video camera in the stadium that caught the action. A small monitor in a corridor between the spare bench and the changing room and a person who passed on the key information acoustically coded with a knock on a garbage can.

The idea behind this wireless network was comparatively simple: With the Houston Astros, it had been found that as a home team in your own stadium you would gain an invaluable advantage against all teams that had traveled there. How? It was the way to transmit the encrypted tactical instructions of the opposing coaches to their pitcher and catcher live. The method that the sports magazine “The Athletic” had uncovered in November was obviously of considerable value. The Houston Astros won the World Series in 2017, became the first in the club's North American baseball champions' almost sixty-year history, and almost repeated this feat last fall.
