The New York Yankees reportedly believe the Houston Astros were stealing signs in a way that broke “unwritten rules” during Game 1 of the ALCS.

According to Andy Martino of SNY, a Yankees coach noticed a whistling sound coming from the Houston dugout before certain pitches during the ALCS opener at Minute Maid Park. The Yankees became angry and yelled across the field, believing the whistling was a form of sign-stealing and was being used to alert batters to what pitch was coming.

A number of coaches and executives said that such an act would be widely considered a violation of the sport’s “unwritten rules.”

HOUSTON — Stealing signs has been a part of baseball for as long as popcorn and Cracker Jack. On Tuesday night, a report surfaced that the defending World Series champion Houston Astros may have been caught trying to steal signs during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series in

The Yankees promptly stole three World Series wins from the Diamondbacks, including two pulled out after they were down to their last strike, prompting Arizona first Hinch now brought in his closer, Giles, much to the unsaid delight of the Yankees . New York saw him in Game 1 , and took note of all

“They are NASA,” one coach said. “If a pitcher is tipping and the players can see from the dugout, no biggie. If they get it from somewhere else, that’s dicey.”

If the Astros had the Yankees’ signs, it didn’t really help as they lost Game 1, 7-0. The whistling apparently stopped for Game 2, which saw Houston win, 3-2 in 11 innings. During that game, the Yankees frequently changed their signs even with no one on base, which indicates there was heavy suspicion that the Astros were stealing them.

Sign-stealing allegations have followed the Astros for a while now. A lot of it stems from the 2018 postseason, when some suspicious things were happening early in the ALCS. The reputation for sign-stealing beyond what would be brushed off by other clubs has followed the Astros ever since.

For all the accusations, though, Houston scored three runs in 20 innings during the first two games of this series, and had more success at the plate in the game where no whistling was heard. In that sense, it doesn’t seem to have impacted the series much.
