DescriptionThe Boston Red Sox used Apple Watches to steal signs against the Yankees during the 2017 regular season, and they admitted to it.

executed a scheme to illicitly steal hand signals from opponents’ catchers in games
against the second-place Yankees and other teams, according to several people
briefed on the matter."
