Sign Stealing? Yeah, There's an App for That, Too

Recommended Posts

Doesn't take a pro to do it.

Now, granted, this applies to base-stealing / offensive sign stealing, but I'm sure the same principle applies to pitch-sign stealing. Especially when you've got those jacka$$ coaches* who insist on using 3-4 digit numeric codes and the card sleeves.

This episode from Mark Rober is enthralling for me, not only because of the science (I used to code database matrices and machine learning systems), but I have encountered most of the coaches he interviews.

*- I was a catcher, and really worked my craft and skills at setting up and signaling a pitch sequence to my pitchers. I did my homework on batters and lineups. Didn't need some code called out from the dugout for everyone to hear.
