Astros manager says team had ‘no idea’ about employee with camera

AJ Hinch

Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Wednesday that the team itself had no knowledge of whatever was going on with a team employee taking video from photographer pits.

As has been widely reported, an Astros employee was removed from the media-credentialed area during multiple games, with opponents believing the purpose of his presence was to steal signs.

Obviously, if it was a sign-stealing operation, someone in the dugout would likely know about it. Hinch says they didn’t.

It’s up to you if you believe it or not. The official explanation that has been forwarded by Major League Baseball was that the Astros positioned the employee to make sure their opponents weren’t breaking any rules, and the league considers the matter closed.
