Boston Red Sox stole signs from New York Yankees using Apple Watches

    Lame. So they use the Apple Watch as a display to receive tips from upstairs.

    I thought this was going to be some sneaky undercover work, where an Apple Watch worn by a coach giving signs would record the movements via the internal sensors and decipher the signs for you.

      Yeah, same. How is this different from the video people calling the phone in the dugout to relay information to the manager, who then relays it to the players?

      That would be against the rules too. Stealing signs is legal. Using technology to do it is not.

    Finally someone found a practical use for a smartwatch. Bravo!

    Stealing signs has been part of baseball for a very long time.

    From the media, depending how they spin it – you’re either “stealing signs” or have “excellent scouting”
