Astros players to apologize for sign stealing


HOUSTON (KTRK/CNN Newsource) — The Houston Astros will publicly apologize for stealing opposing teams’ pitching signs.

Astros owner Jim Crane made the announcement Tuesday, saying the apology would take place at spring training.

Major League Baseball found that the team devised an illegal system of decoding and communicating signs during their 2017 championship season.

The sign-stealing scheme resulted in the firing of Astros manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow.
