The electronic sign stealing scandal in baseball reached another height Tuesday, when the Boston Red Sox were accused of cheating during their 2018 World Series championship season. With both the 2017 World Series champion Houston Astros and now 2018 champion both being accused of sophisticated cheating, it is becoming abundantly clear how huge this is.

It could be bigger than the steroid scandal in terms of getting people to pay attention to baseball.

The steroid scandal in the early to mid 2000s rocked baseball and left a mark of people paying attention to it. Baseball has enjoyed more irrelevance in the past decade, but the electronic sign stealing scandal could change that and bring serious attention to the sport again.

This should not be taken lightly. People might be forced to pay attention to baseball.
