Major League Baseball investigators have determined the Boston Red Sox cheated by stealing hand signals from the New York Yankees and other teams using Apple Watches. The revelation, first reported by the New York Times, says the Red Sox executed a scheme to illegally monitor and disperse a catcher’s hand signals using video and the watches. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman initially filed the complaint using video they shot of the Red Sox dugout during an August series in Boston.

League investigators confirmed the cheating scheme took place, implicating a Red Sox training staff member looking at his Apple Watch in the dugout before relaying the catcher signals to players on the field. True to the competitive nature of the rivalry, the Red Sox filed their own complaint against the Yankees Tuesday, claiming the club used a camera from the YES television network to steal signs.

Twitter tantrums from both sides began almost immediately after the Times broke the story Tuesday afternoon.

Several Bean Town loyalists immediately downplayed the damning New York Times report, while fans of the Bronx Bombers laughed at "another Boston cheating story."

The Red Sox cheating revelation had its defenders, including Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner, who said stealing signs is simply part of the game. President of Baseball Operations for the Red Sox, Dave Dombrowski dismissed the report, telling reporters Tuesday that teams are doing whatever they can to win.

Some tech-savvier Twitter users chose to criticize the device used to cheat: the Apple Watch.

And of course, some Twitter users couldn't help but point out President Trump's cozy past with the Red Sox and other Boston sports figures like the New England Patriots' Tom Brady and Bill Belichick -- who had their own cheating scandal with the New York Jets in 2007's "Spygate."

The Boston Red Sox are currently number one in the American League East and the New York Yankees are a few games behind in second. Needless to say, the controversy and ongoing investigations are likely just heating up as the MLB heads into the playoffs.
