MLB’s Arizona Diamondbacks Fined for Wearing Apple Watch During Game

Major League Baseball has levied a fine against the Arizona Diamondbacks after it was discovered that one of the organization’s coaches wore an Apple Watch during its October 4th game against the Colorado Rockies, according to an official statement from the MLB.

Though the coach, who’s been identified as Diamondbacks’ interpreter Ariel Prieto, ultimately broke the league’s new rules which prohibit the use of electronic devices in the dugout, the league determined after interviewing Prieto and examining his devices that the Apple Watch was not actually used to cheat.

“MLB forensically examined Mr. Prieto’s Apple Watch and his cell phone and interviewed Mr. Prieto,” the league said, while adding that it “found no evidence that Mr. Prieto used the Apple Watch or cell phone for any purpose in the dugout, nor any baseball-related communication on either device, during Wednesday’s game.”

Nevertheless, both Prieto and the Diamondbacks will have to pay an undisclosed fine (much like the Boston Red Sox did earlier this year, when their coaches came under fire for using an Apple Watch to steal signs), although the league insists that the monies collected will be donated to the ongoing hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico.
