Major League Baseball brought down the hammer on the Houston Astros today following an investigation into allegations that they used cameras to steal signs from opposing teams during their 2017 championship season.
The league announced today that Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch have each been suspended without pay for the 2020 season and was eventually fired by the organization. The Astros were also fined $5 million and will have to forfeit their first- and second-round picks in the 2020 and 2021 MLB drafts.
After the news, many baseball fans decided to take action in their own hands and make several changes to the Houston Astros homepage on Wikipedia. Some examples include someone already putting asterisks on the Houston Astros & the Boston Red Sox championship seasons, and earlier in the process, someone also decided to change the World Series MVP to 'the cameraman.'
Now that Major League Baseball has come down on the Astros, we now wait and see what happens with the Boston Red Sox after they conduct the investigation.
