There's an irony here...

Sports teams have signs so as to hide their intentions from the opposition. The very existence of a "secret code" presupposes that the other team is trying as hard as they can to figure out what's coming next. The choreography of baseball signs or what you see on a college or pro football sidelines is so bizarre I wonder how players actually remember it all!

So the idea that somebody may be sitting somewhere with binoculars (or more) shouldn't surprise anyone (I don't like it, but it doesn't surprise me).

We may just need to make it more difficult. How about this?

That's hilarious, Bud.
I don't think there's anything funny about using tech to steal signs, though.
You've seen where Houston had a camera in center field focused on the opposing catcher's signs that fed to a tv monitor just outside their dugout, right?
