DEFINITION: Sign stealing is observing through legal and illegal methods which signs the opposing catcher is relaying to the pitcher. These signs can tell the opposing team what the pitcher will pitch next, giving their hitter an advantage. 


INSPIRATION: One of the most famous cases of sign stealing was the “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” which was a game-winning home run by New York Giants 3rd baseman Bobby Thomson off Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Ralph Brianca at the Polo Grounds in New York City on October 3rd, 1951, to win the National League pennant. Thomson didn’t disclose that he knew what was coming from Brianca for decades. He knew, and he capitalized. More recently, the Houston Astros used technology to steal signs and then bang on a trash can to alert the batter what pitch was coming. It worked and worked very well as they won the World Series in 2017. 

Fun Fact: When Bobby Thomson hit the legendary home run in 1951, 20 year old rookie Willie Mays was on deck.
