Cheated: The Inside Story of the Astros Scandal and a Colorful History of Sign Stealing Free Audiobook Download by Andy Martino
This audiobook tells the inside story of the Astros' signing scandal, which rocked Major League Baseball and caused an immediate overhaul of its international scouting department.
The Astros are the talk of Major League Baseball because of their dominant march to a World Series title despite losing the first two games of their series with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Much of the attention has been centered on how the Astros did it, but few people have stopped to ask about how signs were stolen from them during those first two games.
The Astros are World Series champions. But in order to get there, they didn't want the other teams to know about it. So when the Astros learned that the Yankees were planning to steal signs from them, they did something about it. This detailed audiobook tells the inside story of how one team used its wealth and resources to take down another.
In this audiobook, Andy Martino uses the first-person voice to take the reader through the history of sign stealing in baseball. The story is mostly focused on the Astros, but includes all facets of professional sports including the NFL and NBA.
The Astros were one of the best teams in baseball for years, but began struggling in recent seasons in large part because of the team's inability to turn those millions of fans into ticket sales. This led to a spate of deals with different development and marketing partners that seemed to make little sense, at least from the perspective of the general public. But until now, nobody has told you how it all happened.
Cheated: The Inside Story of the Astros Scandal and a Colorful History of Sign Stealing is a book that tells the story from multiple perspectives, including players, media members, and executives. It follows the Houston Astros from their inception up to the 2017 World Series win.
