Two days after being accused of using an Apple Watch to steal the New York Yankees signs, the Boston Red Sox are hitting back and accusing the Yankees of stealing signs by using a TV camera.
New Jersey's own Todd Frazier celebrates either tagging out the Sox' Eduardo Nunez or another successful Yankees espionage operation.
The Boston Red Sox have presented to the commissioner's office what they say is video evidence of the YES Network maintaining a fixed camera on bench coach Gary DiSarcina during a recent game at Yankee Stadium, a source tells ESPN's Buster Olney.
Olney reports that the Red Sox have been aware of the camera angle before, but this was the first time they have been able to capture images that they then forwarded to the commissioner's office.
The Times, according to unidentified sources, said the Major League Baseball probe started after Yankees general manager Brian Cashman filed a complaint with the commissioner's office that included video.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi denied the allegations Tuesday and said it was "complete nonsense", the Daily News reported.
The New York Times reported on Tuesday that the Yankees had filed a complaint with the commissioner's office that they had proof the Red Sox were using an Apple Watch to relay signals to players.
"Electronic devices are not to be used in the dugout, " he said before Boston hosted the Toronto Blue Jays. Commissioner Rob Manfred has not announced any penalties for either team.
