Just 60 miles east of Williamsport, Pennsylvania, one Little League director is sending a clear message to his 4,000 players about the Houston Astros and their sign stealing.
Jose Altuve? Alex Bregman? Carlos Correa? They’re all out.
Bob Bertoni, head of District 16/31 Little League is recommending that no teams in the 23 leagues he oversees use the Astros team name this season after it was discovered Houston took a live camera feed to steal signs en route to a 2017 World Series title.
He said a few teams used the name last year.
The Orange County Register reported last week that two Little League communities in Southern California banned the Astros name for the upcoming season.
