Astros players apologize for 2017 sign stealing scandal

West Palm Beach, FL – Astros owner Jim Crane and his players held a press conference in West Palm Beach, Florida early Thursday morning to address and apologize for the first time for the sign stealing scandal that happened back in 2017.

This scandal was the root cause of former managers AJ Hitch and Jeff Luhnow being fired back in January of this year. New manager Dusty Baker was also in attendance, in which he described the whole ordeal as a “weird situation for me”.

Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman both made brief statements and sincere apologies on behalf of their fellow teammates. Bregman stated, 

“I am really sorry about the choices that were made by my team, the organization and by me.  I have learned from this and hope to regain the trust of baseball fans.” 

Atuve followed,

“Our team is determined to move forward and bring back a championship in 2020.”

Crane took to the podium and explained that had he knew about what was happening he would have put an end to it early on. He said, 

“I definitely would have done something about it. It won’t happen again on my watch.”

Today also marks the beginning of spring training for the Houston Astros and this public apology is a chance for the team to start off on a good foot for the season.

Crane finished off the conference by saying, 

“We’re apologizing because we broke the rules. We’ve dealt with it. We’ve said we’re sorry. We’re moving forward. We’re going to play baseball!”
