• New Report Claims MLB Approves Use of the Apple Watch in Dugouts



    It has been recently reported that MLB (Major League Baseball) has approved the use of the Apple Watch by team personnel and coaches in the dugout when games are going on. However, the use of other devices like cell phones and tablets are still banned. The only restriction with the wearable device is that as long as it is not being used to communicate, it is perfectly okay to use and wear. This issue had to be addressed because Ned Yost, Kansas City Royals manager, was sporting the Apple Watch in the dugout during the game against the Cincinnati Reds.

    According to MarketWatch, a MLB spokesperson said that the smartwatch was not banned in the dugout like what publications had initially claimed happened after the manager was spotted wearing the watch. The Royals' beat writer for The Star, Andy McCullough, clarified on Twitter that MLB only ensured that Yost wasn’t trying to communicate with team personnel during the game or scout for data on the Apple Watch. Yost told MLB that “when you're away from your phone, all it is is a watch.”

    Do you think players and managers are allowed to use wear the Apple Watch during games especially if it has much more functions than a normal watch? Share your thoughts with us in the section below.
