Astros catcher caught using illegal bat in Game 1 of World Series

There are always accusations of cheating against the Houston Astros.

According to MLB, catcher Martn Maldonado used an unlawful bat in Game 1 of the World Series on Friday night.

During the Game 2 broadcast on Saturday night, Tom Verducci of FOX said that Maldonado had learned from MLB earlier in the day that the bat he had used on Friday was not authorised.

Maldonado borrowed the bat from Albert Pujols because he believed it to be a comparable size and weight to the one he normally used.
