Major League Baseball is investigating the Houston Astros after a man affiliated with the team appeared to be shooting video of the Boston Red Sox during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series.
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 same man, who had been issued a credential before the October 8 game in Cleveland, was removed from an area near Boston's dugout for taking photos during Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday.
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.
After the man was removed another Astros staffer intervened - according to sources who were on the scene - and tried to convince security that he was authorized to be in the area next to the dugout.
The Indians had been upset when an unidentified man, who had been issued a credential before the October 8 game in Cleveland, appeared to be trying to view scouting reports in the team's dugout on Houston's players, one person told AP.
"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.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora said he heard about the alleged incident.
According to ESPN, the Astros were using the man to monitor the Red Sox and make sure they weren't doing anything outside the rules.
"I'm always concerned about that throughout the season", Cora said after Boston's Game 3 win over Houston.
Asked if he thought anything untoward was going on at Fenway Park during Games 1 and 2, Cora said, "No, I don't".
The investigation had threatened to tarnish this postseason and had cast aspersions on the defending World Series champion Astros.
The seven-time All-Star started the series opener but missed Game 2 and didn't travel with the team after being hospitalized. While he doesn't cite specific teams that have been placed under the microscope, it's worth remembering that the Red Sox themselves were fined in 2017 for illegal use of an Apple Watch in the dugout in an effort to steal signs from the division-rival Yankees.
