WACO, Texas — Former Houston Astros Manager AJ Hinch spoke on the sign-stealing scandal that cost he and general manager Jeff Lunhow their jobs, for the first time, in an MLB TV interview on Friday.
In the interview, Hinch addresses his displeasure with the system, and what he wishes he could have gone back and done differently.
He went on to talk about his relationship with former Pitcher Mike Fiers who blew the whistle on the entire sign-stealing scheme.
“I wish I would have had an environment, and a culture that was better for him to have come to me in real time,” Hinch said. “And I wish I could have done better to maybe get that nudge that maybe I needed help to get that nudge to make it better, to make it happen make better leadership decisions.
