MLB to test electronic device for catchers to give signals to pitchers

...

The system, which passed safety tests conducted at the UMass Lowell Baseball Research Center, consists of a transmitter that is worn on a catcher's wristband and two receivers that fit within the sweatband of a pitcher's cap and the padding of a catcher's helmet. The transmitter includes nine buttons to signal desired pitch and location and comes preprogrammed with English and Spanish audio tracks, though teams can also record their own. Information is passed from the transmitter to both receivers using an encrypted communication channel and played with bone-conduction technology, the memo stated.

Or, they could use some simple hand signals.

For those who missed last night's Red Sox vs. Yankees game on ESPN, the new electronic signaling system between catchers and pitchers was discussed at some length. The inventors, John Hankins and Craig Filicetti were described as inventors and marketers of "surreptitious signaling technology" and "electronic technology for magicians,"(!) respectively. BTW, the last ESPN game between the Sox and Yanks garnered between 7 and 8.5 million viewers, the most for the sports network in more than 20 years.

Note: Last year's article: https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/3186......pitchers ("We are excited to see our PitchCom technology tested under game conditions," the company's co-owners, Craig Filicetti and John Hankins, wrote as part of a statement to ESPN. "As avid baseball fans, we saw a clear opportunity to use technology to help solve pace-of-play and sign-stealing challenges and improve the game that we love.")
Details make perfection, but perfection is no detail.

BS. Signals should HAVE to be part of the game as it allows for the other team to steal them.
