Rep. Bobby Rush on Friday called for the House to hold a hearing into an ongoing cheating scandal in Major League Baseball that has ensnared three teams so far.
Rush said the House has an “imperative” to investigate the cheating allegations, which was sparked by revelations that the Houston Astros used techniques to alert batters of upcoming pitches that violated MLB rules.
The Astros employed the practice during the 2017 season when they won the World Series.
The letter was sent to Reps. Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.), Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) and Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.).
The lawmakers chair the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations and the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Commerce, respectively.
