MLB Investigating Astros Employee For Videotaping Red Sox's Dugout

Houston Astros Employee Accused Of Suspicious Activity During Game 1 vs. Red Sox

Just because he's doing postseason analysis for Fox Sports 1 doesn't mean he's going to hide the fact that he's very clearly rooting for the Boston Red Sox against the Houston Astros.

Security was tipped off to the man by the Cleveland Indians, according to multiple reports. We feel like it's a value-added thing for us to do. On that note sign stealing is a common practice in baseball, and somewhat easily done due to the down time in games that allow for keen observation.

A separate report from Yahoo Sports identified the man as Kyle McLaughlin and says he aimed a cell phone into the Indians' dugout during their Game 3 loss to the Astros in the AL Division Series.

During the Astros' series-clinching win on October 8 at Progressive Field in Cleveland, a man with a cellphone standing by the photographer's pit was removed "several times" by security personnel, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday night.

The Red Sox had been warned before their series-opening game to look out for the man, the AP was told by the people.

"We are aware of the matter, and it will be handled internally", Major League Baseball communications officer Pat Courtney said Tuesday night, after the Red Sox's 8-2 victory in Houston gave the Red Sox a 2-1 series lead. To address those worries, the commissioner instituted a new prohibition on the use of certain in-stadium cameras, beefing up Major League Baseball security at games and monitoring video rooms.

Air Forces in Europe and Africa issued a statement saying it was aware of "reports claiming a U.S. casualty". Senyk could not confirm the information about one of the pilots being the US citizen.

The Indians entered the series concerned the Astros, who have been suspected of cheating in the past, had stolen some signs or had other useful information about them, one person said.

Asked if he thought anything untoward was going on at Fenway Park during Games 1 and 2, Cora said, "No, I don't".

Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who served as bench coach for the Astros last season, also addressed the topic.

With two out and two on in the Red Sox' half of the third inning in ALCS Game 3 on Tuesday, Steve Pearce drove a fly ball deep to left field that seemed certain to hit the wall and drive home both baserunners.

According to the report, the Yankees had long held suspicions that the rival Red Sox were stealing signals at Fenway Park, and their claims were corroborated by the league after filing the complaint.
