Summary
  • "The definitive insider story of the cheating scandal that rocked Major League Baseball in 2019, bringing down high-profile coaches and players, and exposing a long-rumored "sign-stealing" dark side of baseball"--
  • The Houston Astros had won the 2017 World Series and made the playoffs the next two seasons. All the while, opponents felt that Houston's hitters knew what pitches were coming, and that the team had been stealing signals for several years. The ensuing scandal ensnared many other teams, either as victims, alleged cheaters or both. Martino takes readers behind the scenes and into the heart of the events that shocked the baseball world. He breaks down not only exactly what happened and when, but reveals the fascinating explanations of why it all came about. -- adapted from jacket
