MLB rumors: Is there proof Astros cheated vs. Yankees in 2019 ALCS?

It turns out the Yankees had reason to be suspicious of the Houston Astros during the 2019 American League Championship Series after all. A report from SNY's Andy Martino late Saturday night validates complaints made by the Yankees of whistling coming from the Astros dugout during the first two games of the series, which took place at Minute Maid Park. While the league announced it found no evidence of wrongdoing after an investigation during the series, including a league official sitting at the dugout level who said he heard nothing in Game 1, officials did hear frequent, loud whistling that the Yankees complained about in a further video review of footage from Game 1, according to Martino.
