Upon reading about the Toronto Blue Jays “stealing signs” article (which suggested a mysterious man in white was responsible for tipping off Jays hitters about which pitch was coming) I knew I had to search through my photo archives to see if I could catch this supposed incident…
Well, I couldn’t.
Later on Jose Bautista confirmed it was a game against the Chicago White Sox in early Spring of 2010 in which he had an encounter with the visitors bullpen about this.
A quick search of Flickr for the Jays/White Sox series in April 2010 yielded a couple of photos of the area in question in which you could see a fan or two dressed in white:
In the top photo you can see a “man in white” on the opposite side of where the White Sox bullpen would be, in the bottom photo there are a couple of “men in white” on the White Sox side of the batters-eye.
In both photos, the Blue Jays are hitting.
Does this prove anything? Nah… but I thought it was at least worth sharing with the community.
