Three-time NBA champ LeBron James is producing a documentary on the sign-stealing scandal from 2015 and beyond.
Quibi announced Friday that the docuseries tentatively titled “Sign Language” will debut on the streaming service and will be produced by James’ Uninterrupted sports media company.
During the 2017 World Series, the Texas team began stealing signs, noting what the opposing pitcher was throwing next and properly preparing the batter for it.
The Athletic published a groundbreaking report where Mike Fiers –who pitched for the Astros in 2017–admitted and explained how the team used a centerfield camera to pick up the other team’s signs.
The team went as far as to develop a system that included banging a trash can in the dugout to let hitters know an “off-speed pitch” was coming.
