Houston Astros Now Being Accused of Cheating with Whistling

The Astros are using whistling now to tip off pitches?

During 98.5 The Sports Hub’s “Toucher and Rich Show” this morning, some viewers thought they heard whistling noises during Houston’s 9-1 win over the Red Sox the previous night. A whistling sound could be heard just before Yordan Alvarez hit a solo home run off Chris Sale to give the Astros a 1-0 lead in the top of the second.

A whistling sound could also be heard just before Jose Altuve hit a solo home run in Game 4 to tie the game in the top of the eighth.

Twitter user Jomboy posted several videos from Game 1 of the ALCS last week, and seems to have identified the whistling.

Whistling sounds at a ball game are nothing new, but when it comes to the Astros, it’s going to raise some eyebrows.
