Dodgers’ Dave Roberts Has Hilarious Response to PitchCom Issue on Sunday Night Baseball

Following the Houston Astros’ World Series trash-can-banging scandal against the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2017, Major League Baseball has been trying to clean up the prevalence of sign stealing. The league legalized PitchCom devices for the 2022 season.

PitchCom is a wireless communication system that lets a pitcher call and receive pitch signals without using visible signs. On Sunday night, Kiké Hernandez was mic’d up by ESPN. His PitchCom feed was picked up by the microphone he was wearing.

On Monday, manager Dave Roberts was asked if he heard about the PitchCom situation. Without hesitation he answered with, “I would have a little comment about a trash can, but I’m not gonna go there.”

Roberts didn’t think it gave the St. Louis Cardinals an advantage and the Dodgers eventually went on to win the game by a score of 5-4, but this should serve as a reminder to all players who accept the responsibility of being mic’d up that they probably shouldn’t have their PitchCom too loud or on at all while on the broadcast.
