So the Red Sox are using devices to help work out what a pitcher is throwing. I want to know what we think is next?
Which sports can use Apple devices to their benefit somehow? Maybe the England cricket team could use one to reflect the sun into the eyes of the Australian batsmen during the Ashes? Maybe kids will start using trackers when playing hide and seek to find their friends.
What do we think is next?
The Boston Red Sox used an Apple Watch to steal pitching signs during baseball games, including against the New York Yankees, according to The New York Times. An investigation conducted by Major League Baseball determined that a member of the Red Sox training staff used the smartwatch to receive information that helped the team’s players decipher hand signals used by the opposing team’s catcher, who is in charge of making (and signaling) the pitch selections for the pitcher.
